What's on the Bench

I'll be posting more images as the build continues.

The first issue was to work with the standard design of the Style O and see what would need to change in order to incorporate F holes. The bridge sits further back on the original oval holed design so to have the F holes in the correct place aesthetically and acoustically the bridge would have to come further forward. The result of all this is that the neck will now join the body at the 17th fret instead of the 15th.

The 'Style O' F Hole Guitar

Having completed the original Style O guitar build a while ago, I was delighted to be presented with another order for a Style O. This instrument however is to be an F hole version. I think this may be the first time this has been done and I'm excited to see the results.
