That is beyond beautiful. As with many others, I actually love the top, and the finish really looks beautiful. Congratulations! I'd love to hear it in action.

My Cordoba does, and I really like the sound of it . Then again, it just depends on the maker. It's true that classicals don't usually have truss rods though.

Well, I eventually made a vid about my 2 new axes. I have about 742 excuses for my bad playing in the vid, so let me know if you wan't to hear them.



For some reason, windows movie maker cut a lot on the clips earlier than I wanted, but oh well. I'm sure I had to mention something else, but I'm forgtting it for now... Hope you like it.

Oh, a free milkshake for whoever guesses all the songs I butchered to death in the vid (If I ever see the winner in person)

I remembered. Still need to make a nut and control cavity cover, but as you can see it's perfectly playable anyways. I'm starting to like this zero freat thing.

I think it has a lot to do with the particular strings I'm using. the slightly lower tension strings did get a bit of "quack", but the high tension ones I've got now sound pretty damn well... I'll try composites next.

Thanks, and sorry for butchering that song, my nails are NOT quite there yet after sanding and shaping these axes. They are still at that awkward point where I'm touching the strings with the tips of my fingers first, and then the nails... which slows me down and sounds lame.

Perhaps it looks huge because of how the fingerboard is pulled waaay out of the body. Scale length is actually 636mm-666mm, so it's pretty close to 25"-26.25... which is'nt huge. The redwood oone is 27.5 though, which feels perfect for me.

Don't know how I missed this, but that's an awesome build! So I didn't see anything in here about the chambering. Did you do it mainly for weight? Or for a tone difference? And if for tone difference, was it specifically because you were using nylon strings?

Nah, it's not chambered to reduce weight, though it helped balance the guitar, since this particular mahogany was much heavier than most mahogany I've got access to.

Before I built this guitar, I tried some nylon strings on a schecter c6 atx to get an idea of what I would be dealing with (unplugged... obviously). it wasn't my deffinition of loud, so I figured I would have to do something about that to get a decent sounding guitar, and chambering seemed like a good solution.

I think it worked nicely.

Scherzo, I have a question about that bridge you made, would you say it was hard at all? (not density)

I was planning on buying a bridge from rondo, however they're out, soo... I thought that maybe I could hazard building a baseplate like you did and buy some saddles

would it hold? and what kinda wood would you recommend?

Making the bridge was pretty easy. No problems there. However, next time I make a multiscale I'll have a bridge machined for me out of brass or aluminum. Hell, I might even get one made for my upcommin 6er and use some hipshot saddles I have left over.

Wood bridges have been used a lot for electric guitars, but remember a couple of things. You need to ground the strings, so you will still need some metal on it. You need to use something stable and hard. I would not try making one out of ebony or ziricote for steel strings... maybe pau ferro.
