Each rosette is individually made with very slight variation in design. The outer & inner circles of the rosette are the same as the purfling around the edge of the soundboard.

The Amazaque bridge has six double holes in the tie block providing for good break angle and easy tying of the strings.

Double thickness binding on bass side of guitar provides for greater rounding and more comfort on all of my guitars.
The European spruce soundboard is covered with beautiful extreme markings of hazel fichte (bear claw). It is braced with 7 tight grained spruce fan struts .
The sides are of a double laminate and the back of a triple laminate as can be seen in the description below.

This is a guitar with exceptional projection, a gorgeous tone with
clear fundamentals, and good sustain with a varied palette of beautiful colours.



Body Volume:
12.3 litres
This refers to the approximate internal capacity of the soundbox and gives. for comparison, a more accurate size of the individual guitars that I make.
ie if the body cavity were filled with a liquid this is how many litres it would hold.
