Please note: due to changes in regulations and constant design developments, we sometimes need to change details such as binding and inlay materials.
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.
