Rio Falstaff 12~String

I made this to match a 6 string for the same customer.  I’ve come to the conclusion that 12 string guitars simply do not need to be 14 fret designs.  12 frets is fine, in fact I think I might try 10 frets before long, on a large body that would put the bridge right where it should be.  Watch this space. 

It's is a privilege to work with wood as beautiful as this. I love the smell of "Dalbergia Nigra"- sort of a cross between smoked bacon and dry hay.  I suppose its right that something like this should be in short supply and regulated.  No guitar maker would want to be the one to chop down the very last tree.
