2013 Port Orford Cedar/Red Cedar Left-Handed

This guitar pictured here was a special commision for several reasons. Firstly the guitar is left handed. The client wanted Port Orford cedar to be used for the back and sides, and requested that I use the most figured wood I have for the back. He also asked for a red cedar top, which is an unusual combination of materials. Several other details that make the guitar unique are the 645mm scale length, the releif-carved and stippled head, and the poly/oil finish. The sound is exquisitely warm and clear-I am currently building another instrument much like this one for myself, as I believe cypress to be one of the best woods for the back and sides.

The guitar has only been played a hanful of times. The owner realized shortly after receiving the guitar that he was not going to have the time to play it, but kept if for over a year hoping circumstances would change. This instrument is as new with no sign of wear. A truly unusual guitar with a beatifully clear and warm voice, exceptional volume, and comfortable action.
