Lovely builds Peter. That classical is gorgeous. Is it a well known outline or your own shape? The proportions really work for me.

Thanks Dave.

It's close to a Jeffrey Elliott design. I am very happy with the balance across the strings.

Cheers Peter.

Have to add my appreciation...those all look great. Love the laminated neck on the SS and the superb grain on the Classical.
Very very nice.
