Guitar #1 | 1967

  • Brazilian rosewood; European spruce top; Honduras mahogany neck; 3-layer Brazilian rosewood peghead overlay; 3-layer binding; hand-made rosette

  • Lacquer finish

I made this guitar from an Eric Sloan book. I talked about it with Charles Chase, the owner of the Folk Music Center, but basically had no fear – you just have to do it. I was 19 years old, just out of high school. Brian Burns taught me how to make a rosette the right way.
