I am very excited to present two guitars that have joined me very recently (hadn't had time to make a new NGD post).
First is a Taylor 114ce that I found a good deal on. Super excited to finally have a decent acoustic so I can get my folk on :shred:.
Secondly, I have a guitar that I decided to build myself during school. Having access to Stanford's Product Realization Lab, which is magical place that has a woodshop, metalshop, and anything you'd like to build stuff, I decided that I had to make something before I graduated. I went out and bought some Honduran mahogany and flamed maple, as well as a zebrawood-wenge neck, 25.5" scale and 9.25" radius. For the hardware, I decided to go with a Schaller-Hannes bridge and Hipshot open-geared tuners. I then decided on Dimarzio Titans for the pickups. Lastly, I finished the guitar using Birchwood Casey's Tru Oil. Hope y'all enjoy the pics!

The Taylor is cool, but your build is great and outshines the Taylor!
Wonderful job man and HNGD! :D

That Taylor is lovely, I'd like to see more acoustics around here, instead of jamming them into a dusty little sub-forum that no one visits.

I'm really happy with the Taylor so far! Huge fan of the minimalistic design with the knobs for the electronics and the satin finish.
