Second coming of the baritone

This is my second baritone this season, with a brand new silhouette, more slim-waisted.
I really love the way that back shimmers.
The soundboard is made of Western red cedar: I chanced upon this stunning yellow-hued piece and it did not disappoint.
The neck is yet another experiment in gluing various woods together.
Nicely veined canary wood for the fretboard and bird's eye maple veneer over the headstock.
I'm enjoying the baritone sound more and more. This one is mellower than the previous one.
