Lovely as usual, Allen. I love the way you approach rosettes.

Hey Allen- I really like your concert shape, very classic but original looking as well. When you do a pin bridge, do you use a spruce bridge plate or something harder like on a guitar? Are you cutting your own pins or using a standard size?

Thanks
Aaron

As always looking great: I really like your box shape and whilst I couldn't hope to copy your rosettes and overall style, maybe I could make a new mould to add to my rather square tenor!

This has a mahogany bridge plate. On most I use a Australian Blackwood bridge patch. The bridge pins are standard 3 degree taper un-slotted pins from Gurian. But I do have form tools for my lathe to make my own, which I do fairly often.

Beautiful
Suggest you make some more. These won't stay in stock for long.
