I was given a fancy new notebook to record guitar data with my name on it for my birthday this year. I was excited to put in the first entry today after making some progress on the latest Torres/Romanillos model that I’ll be sending to Galerie des Luthiers in Lyon, France.
Here are some progress photos from the making of all the parts. Roughed-out neck blank, head stock with v-joint, rosette with a new lozenge exterior motif and the top and back plates planed to final thickness. I’m one of dwindling number of luthiers still planing all their backs and sides by hand, so I feel like I gotta take some photos and romanticize the whole thing a bit!
