John Smith's 12-String (Again)


Actually, this is of course, not John Smith's guitar, but it is a "clone".  I never keep proper details of custom guitars that have been made, which is silly, but it does mean that every one is always a little different, so maybe it isn't that silly.  This time I was asked to use Siricote -  40 years ago this timber was unknown in guitar making, and I had lots and lots of it, and now its highly regarded, and I have very little. All the rest was cut into small pieces to make snooker cues. . It is very similar to "Rio" in grain patterns and properties, but doesn't smell anything like as nice.  The bindings here are Lacewood.
