Beautiful piece of work Tom.
Even before I think about the time and patience it must have taken to build the guitar, the time and care putting together the photo album alone would have driven me mad.
Congratulations.
Sound sample please.

Thank you Jim. Your right, the time it took to upload all those photos drove me nuts but I thought if there's people out there that are interested in building and would like to know how certain things are done or what the process involves, it would be helpful as a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, 80 thousand words

Very late but the guitar is very beautiful.

The photos are very instructive too - I think you only use purfling on the banding on the top and bottom and not the sides (I think!) - I've been worrying about what to do there. I was going to put it on all bandings but it seemed too much intuitively. It looks like not the stripe up the back either.

Is it usual to have the thin dimension for the back stripe or can one use the wide dimension? (I know we can do what we want but I'm trying like you in this project, to follow fairly closely what I can learn of the tradition.)

Thanks.

Wow this was an old post. I never noticed satvic and Arash had also posted so my apologies for not seeing them.

Satvic, yes I am in Denton. Would love to meet sometime.

Thank you Arash

El Burdo, you are correct. I tried to stay as close as possible to the original and if my memory serves me correct, only the top had purfling. The back had a very thin stripe as well.

I've seen other Santos Hernandez where he used a wider back strip. It will just depend on how close you want to come to the original you are copying.

Thank you very much Stephen and Flamingrae. I have not built anything in quite some time. We sold our house and along with it, the shop. Now I have no place to build. I'm just enjoying life right now and playing guitar again. Even making an attempt at reconnecting with the blues. Acoustic blues that is. Taking a little flamenco break. From playing and building. Not listening. Got Paco arriving in town in a couple months. Can't wait.

I just realized I had wrote 1944. This was a typo. It was actually a 1943.

Must be a very late one. I wondered about that at the time the thread was active, since he died in 1943.

RE: 1943 Santos Hernandez copy COMPLETED (in reply to nhills

Yes you are correct. I did say 1943 on one of the captions of the photo essay but here on the foro, I typed 1944 and didn't realize that until Mr. R.E. Brune pointed that out to me so thank you Mr. Brune! I will make the change. This was a few years ago. It was nice to relive it through this post. I had totally forgot about it. I'm going to try and contact the owner of the original guitar and see if I can take some good photos to post here.
