Shaping a Spanish Heel

Got a new way of doing something? Or maybe an old method that needs some clarification.

Shaping a Spanish Heel

Post by StratoA » Tue Jun 28, 2016 7:23 pm

In this video I'm shaping a Spanish Heel mostly with chisels. The Spanish heel seems to be a bit old fashioned these days with a lot of makers preferring bolt on's. I will only use Spanish Heels for flamenco guitars to minimize weight. I use the same shaping technique for shaping bolt on heels.
