Finished up a new cedar and Indian rosewood guitar last week and got it delivered to its new owner, a great local guitarist Stefan Steinhauser. I’m quite happy with how this one turned out. It’s kind of a take on several Bouchet inspired guitars that I’ve liked in the past, mainly Marin Montero and Delarue. I feel like this guitar has the clarity that I like so much about this style of instrument. The basses aren’t too stiff or broad and the trebles aren’t to harsh, but it still has a nice clear attack and presence.
