View Full Version : Quilted Maple and Adirondack Long Neck Concert

02-02-2016, 06:52 PM
This is the last to be finished of a batch of 3. It was the only one to get a high gloss finish and that always takes way more time.

Back and Sides - Quilted Maple
Soundboard - Adirondack Spruce
Fret Board 12 - 16" compound radius in Indian Rosewood
Bindings, Headplates and Bridge - Indian Rosewood
Tuners - Grover
Inlay - Hormigo

It's a 16" scale length and I strung it up with a low G set of Worth Browns.

Unbelievably beautiful.

Have you ever made that in a LN Concert with a 17 inch scale?

Love the figure on the back wood. That must have been fun to finish. As always tremendous work Allen... Today I glued on the neck to the body which is to be a batch of 1 of 1. It doesn't look near this good. I am not worthy.

Love the fretboard, very clever - and so is the rest of it of course

Absolutely stunning! There's just so much that's beautiful here: the fretboard, the endgraft, the back inlay, that pined bridge and your trademark heel........to mention a few.

No I haven't. It wouldn't fit in one of the cases I have available. Possibly you might find something that would work outside of Australia, but we're pretty limited in our choices. Otherwise it would need to go into a tenor case and probably rattle around in there. Not something I like to do.

Your work is beautiful beyond description, I am in awe! That quilted maple is something I'll have to try sometime in the distant future!
