Incense cedar soundboard and neck, everything else is manzanita. I decided to log how much time I spent on this one -- it came to just over 28 hours, which does not include the time spent milling the back, sides, and soundboard, but pretty much everything else.

Beautiful again, Doug. You could start selling them; they would fly away.
How's the sound of this one?

Nice finish! Is it Tru-oil?

Thanks. I'm thinking of doing more season prizes with these. I think the sound is pretty good, I used it for my season 85 version of Superstition.


Nice finish! Is it Tru-oil?

Yes, Tru-oil seems to work quite well with the manzanita, and is easy for me, since I'm not set up for any kind of spraying.

Thanks, Lily, as I said above, I featured it in my season 85 entry, and I'm sure I'll be using it for upcoming seasons until I build my next one. :)

Thanks, Gary. I have to say I feel so fortunate I came across your thread about looking for luthier classes in the Bay Area. It's safe to say that the class with Rick changed my life. Thanks.
