My ported Padauk finished 

Just wanted to show this one off a little.
The Padauk can be a pain to work with, mostly because of the red dust that gets everywhere, but I have to say it's my favorite negra wood now.
The thing is honestly a monster, and I still think some of the overall volume this guitar has comes from the addition of the port.

That's one beast of a guitar. Awesome sound.

I really want to get a negra with paduak/coral wood!

(of the guitars you've posted videos for, I think it's the one the sound of I enjoy the most)

I really like the headstock design. This makes me want to build a guitar with a soundport...

Looks and sounds great Andy! Beautifully clean work! I like the nut detail and the rosette is very classy.
What diameter Pegheds did you use?

Thanks Jorge. I kind of lose track of everything Chuck is sending me but I think those are the standard Ramirez, maybe 8 mm?
