  •   zdrickard Do you notice much of a tonality difference from having a solid backstrip? 3w
  •   turnstoneguitar Hi @zdrickard thanks for your comment! My aim is to have a responsive ‘live back’. If the back panel join is really clean and tight I just don’t think a full strip is needed and it counteracts against what I am trying to achieve with my cross bracing – having the biggest open areas possible whilst maintaining structural integrity. So it’s part of a wider tone/bracing theory on my back rather than it specifically altering the overall tone. I hope I’ve managed to answer your question a bit! 3w
  •   zdrickard @turnstoneguitar awesome, thanks so much for taking the time to get back to me. It makes sense for sure. I'd also say that if it ever does start to open over time it will be world's easier to repair and close back up! 3w

guitarguitaruk Martin D-35 Brazilian Rosewood 50th Anniversary
Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra) produces a very hard and heavy wood, characteristically varied in colour from brick red through various shades of brown (medium to nearly black). Pieces that feature veins of black coloration called spider webbing or landscape grain are especially prized. Brazilian rosewood has a distinctive floral fragrance—reminiscent of roses with a distinctive sweetness—and strongest in old growth wood. Another distinguishing feature is its outstanding resonance. An evenly cut piece that is tapped emits a bright metallic ring that sustains. This property, combined with its beauty, has made Brazilian rosewood a favorite of musical instrument makers for centuries.

carillionguitars The first 000DB baritone 7string is almost ready for finishing.
People have been asking me for years to build extended range acoustics and I've finally gotten round to prototyping this one for @sdeburca! Keen to see how she sounds now!
