New Guitar Order! 

Hi everyone I am excited for to share the news that I have an order in with Shelton Farretta Guitars for a new Blanca. After almost switching paths out of flamenco I decided I couldn't deny the passion I had for it. I will post some pictures of course when it arrives in the coming months. John could not be a nicer a guy to deal with up to this point. Also thanks to the other luthiers here who I have discussed possible builds with, you have all been generous with your time.

Here is a photo that John shared with me of the parts of the guitar ready for assembly.

The excitement grows...

The seed has been planted, now the growth of a guitar with a sole of it's own.

Smells fishy to me. Is the sole OK with the relatively low humidity in the guitar case?

It's probably a breathable inner sole.

That's a relief! If it's breathable it shouldn't smell too bad.

If that's the sole problem, I'd say the guitar's going to be alright.

Is the back teria? If so, it will smell.

I prefer cypress.

I would recommend being extra aware of the acoustics of the place he's playin in.

Wouldn't bring that guitar to play in a mush room.

Josh,

Do you know if the center lines in the neck are ebony or carbon filler? And I suppose they go all the way through?

Hi everyone, unfortunately I had some personal things come up and had to cancel my order.

Tom: from what John told me they are ebony strips that go all the way through.


Someone will get a good one

hey josh, that is very unfortunate :( are you still planning on ordering a guitar anytime in the near future? If you do, let us know.

@martins, time for some puns about my new guitar?
