Cherry Small Jumbo  2011

This cherry and red spruce small jumbo was custom ordered and now lives in Florida.
The owner chose all the wood for the back, sides, top, fingerboard and bridge after choosing from four pieces for each part.  The contrasting headstock overlay was his suggestion and I liked it so much that I incorporated it to the guitars I’ve made since then.

Sonically it compares to my other small jumbos, it is a very versatile guitar with a string spacing suitable for fingerstyle or strumming and a very low action making it easy to play.

After receiving it the owner wrote saying how pleased he was and that the guitar sounded and played better than he expected, he also was surprised at how beautifull the cherry back & sides were. (Harvesting and cutting the tonewoods myself gives me acess to beautyfull and sonically superior wood.  It’s a lot of work but it is worth it).
