Toby Hay's Ariel

Here it is, not the usual Mike English pictures I'm afraid, just me struggling with a digital camera that has more functions than I have brain cells. (Careful!)

The back and sides are powerfully striped Macassar Ebony, which compares nicely with his 12 string and the top is very light-coloured Cedar. Toby would have liked to use Spruce, but I persuaded him that the guitar would be rather bright, Cedar gives a lovely mellow tone on a small guitar. Toby's 12 string has a red kite inlaid in the fingerboard. This one has a curlew.
