"Luthiers share your creations&... 

I had this idea for what I thought would be a good thread and you guys can run with it if you want to or not.

Basically: Guitar porn/pictures of finished work.

The reason for collecting a bunch of people's work in one thread would be to make it fun for players/other builders to look through at different guitars, and just to have a communal place where we go to show off and talk about our latest projects.

I will start with one and if no one else is interested in the idea the thread will just die a natural death .

This is how I like to do my purflings these days, simple thin stripe up the back.

Isn't that what the 'Luthiers' section is already?

Nice rosette on that by the way. I like the simplicity of it. Very tasteful.

I knew somebody was going to say that. There is 90% other stuff in the Lutherie section and I thought this might be a nice way to organize just finished work as a kind of permanent gallery. Sort of like the falseta swap shop.

I have always enjoyed the pictures of you all's guitars, whether finished or during the building process.My first stop when I log on to the foro is this section to look for the most recent works. Be nice to have a "gallery". I am a sucker for peg head blancas!

Just finished my first peghead blanca. First peghead guitar I've ever played and I really enjoy it.

Its beautifull. Congratulations. Isnt there any inlay on the bridge?

Also, and its only my taste, the heel is a bit on the bulky side.

Yeah the bridge doesn't have an inlay, did it just to see what would happen to the rosewood. It works but leaves a little dent- probably won't do that again. Anders you are right, the heel does look a bit bulky on this one.

Andy, do you use thin strips of bloodwood and then bend them or do you route out a circle in a piece of wood? Your rosette looks nice.

The little dents in the bridge will grow and grow... And before or later you´ll need to make some reinforcement inlays, like bone. Do it before it becomes tricky.

Really nice picture. I am no expert in photography but nice contrast/color.

Deteresa, you have to get the guitar out of the workshop and set it in a 'sexier' setting. Let's see, a bed, a jacuzzi... ;)

Cool, people are posting. That is a beautiful guitar Blair, but I definitely agree about the bridge inlay (and the heel shape). Very nice pictures. I think I need a better camera, and perhaps sexier settings.

3 sessions of shellac on this baby

Thanks, the bloodwood rings are just veneer strips.

I would rather have separate threads to show individuals work because it's is easier for people to search your name and find your work. In a gallery or group thread each persons work is harder to find.

That said, I will show my Vanilla and Chocolate glue blocks in Ralexanders blanca which is underway. I'll show it later by itself or he will.

So those chocolate pieces, I can just eat those when I get the guitar, right?

I've never noticed the transverse braces joined at the sides like that. Is that typical?

Something else I noticed - the side supports on the lower treble side, not mirrored on the bass side. Is that hoodoo voodoo you do?

All the guitars look great, fellers.

RE: "Luthiers share your creati... (in reply to Andy Culpepper

Maybe, then again maybe not...

The transverse braces are pinned up with big pillars on this one. There is a reason for that. It has to do with stiffening the ribs right there and with sustain and some other stuff. The sticks on the treble side are there for stiffness. Making the ribs stiffer in some places and not others does stuff, depending on a bunch of other stuff. Something else is happening on the bass side later. A lot of it has to do withe Port Orford and how stiff I like it to be in different areas. I would not treat rosewood like that, but the Port Orford is pliable in one direction more than in another and I respond to that as I build. Port Orford is amazing at not cracking so you can make certain areas really thin, but they need stiffening.
Time to get out of here and go for a beer.

Not a flamenco, but the next one will be a Barbero style blanca.

This one is based on the GAL Jose Romanillos plan. Palo Escrito and Lutz Spruce. Sorry, LMI rosette, no eye candy there. I've just never had time to design one, but Stephen's videos were a nice push.

Its a wonderfull piece of Palo Escrito. My number 1 was a Palo Escrito based on the Romanillos plan, but with flamenco neck angle, bridge and setup. It plays really well. Its finished with true oil.

Why is the bridgebone so high on the bass side. I find that very uncomfortable.

Thanks Anders. I liked working with the Palo Escrito - I hope others ask for it.

The customer asked for a really big difference in action between e and E, which I wasn't warned about. (3.2mm at e, 4.5 mm at E, so a 2.6 mm slope at the bridge) Had I known this, I would have taken a mm off the fretboard on the bass side. I don't like the looks of it either.

A late postscript: How did the Romanillos design work as a flamenco? I've been surprised at how much power these have had. (This is my second - the first was Cedar and Indian Rosewood).
