Big Leaf Maple/German Spruce
This Big Leaf Maple and German Spruce 00 is my first attempt to make a
brand new 75 year old guitar. I have the advantage of having a near
neighbor who is extremely well regarded in the violin world for his
skill in antiquing violins, and he has spent considerable time coaching
me in the art. The trick is to create the appearance of age without
actually doing any meaningful harm. I erred on the conservitive side if
I erred at all, and the guitar looks great to my eye. I imagine that I
will do better next time none the less!

What amazes me most is that this guitar sounds incredibly smooth and
mellow to me, as though it were as old as it looks.
