    Default 5 String Tenor - Australian Blackwood and Mahogany Picture Set

    This is a commision and the first time I've built one of these as a long neck version. Lots of measuring 3 and 4 times and then checking againg to make sure everything was right. Happily everything went nice and smooth. Almost like it was wanting to be an instrument. That's not always the case.

    So it's curly Australian Blackwood with a Brazilian Mahogany soundboard. A strip of sapwood from the same blackwood for the back strip inlay and rosette. Gotoh Stealth tuners as full size slot head tuners would make the peg head overly long and look out of balance.
