2017 Stephen Faulk Cedar top - Hinoki back & sides flamenca.
Silver mounted ebony pegs. Cuban cedar neck. Cocobolo headplate, French polish finish, ebony binding.
And my signature original Green Moth motif rosette.

The friction pegs work like a dream. Up front trebles and seductive bass. Even throughout the range and growly voice like a flamenco singers eco.
A fantastic guitar, set up with 7.5 mm high at the bass string, 7 at treble side - 2.5mm high at 12th fret treble 3mm on bass.
Plays quite clean, and can go lower.

It has a really nice release of notes with ligado and a string tension that enables alzapua and rasgueado to work for the player.

The person who photographed it said this guitar reminded him of the very light Ramirez blancas that were made in the late 1950's . It weighs 1.2 kilo and has excellent balance on the thigh, perfect for playing in old style position or cross leg position.

Thank you, but dare to dream. I have some more stunning Hinoki, two piece and four piece backs. The last Hinoki I took for resawing has beautiful striations and I also have plenty of High Grade Cedar tops and good neck materials. Also have several dozen seasoned pegs. I can make more guitars very much like this one. Sometimes I negotiate a payment plan, Lennies first guitar was arranged that way. Please contact me if if you want to discuss.

I didn’t connect the dots on this, can’t believe David Serva played it! Awesome!
I recommend it julienev, this guitar isn’t an anomaly, Stephen just builds great guitars.
