This is the third guitar in a trilogy of OM-size guitars with carved and colored rosettes. Magnificent spalted Maple back and sides!
The theme of this guitar is springtime. The dominant colors are green and yellow, and the rosette carving will represent flowers (buttercups) in a random pattern. The flowers refer to the ephemeral, and the randomness of the pattern to the continuous-time where things are built linearly, each step bringing something new while still building upon the previous ones, the way one would experience a journey.
Let's personalize it together.
- European Spruce top
- Maple back and sides
- Mahogany neck
- Ebony fingerboard
- Ebony bridge
- Spirit varnish finish (shellac with sandarac and other resins)
The final photo in the gallery illustrates the process to create the carved and colored rosettes. The rosette shown is from the first in the trilogy, the Neptune.
