Bari in the making

Another baritone: the rough work is done, the neck and body properly joined. Now it will go and rest in a corner until next spring when I can start sanding outside again. As for my first baritone, I've used lacewood and ivory for the back, jatoba for the neck, that wonderful maple for the sides, but spruce for the soundboard. The body is deeper at the bottom than at the top, the waist is "plumper", and the shape of the headstock is also different.

  1. I like the unique shape of the headstocks.
