This is the guitar I build twice, because I damaged the top when it was ready the first time.
It is a M-style Jumbo with a fallaway cutaway (sometimes here called "Ditson style", I could not find such a Ditson).
Anyway:

Cedar top
Padouk Back/sides
Madagascar Rosewood fingerboard/headplate/bridge
Ebony/Crow's feet binding
Honduran Mahogany neck

The new owner will produce a decent clip soon, but till then you are stuck with me trying.
Recorded with a condensor microphone, without effects

The guitar looks and sounds great! Did you make the crows feet purflings? The guitar sounds like it has a great deep voice.

Thanks John, the purfling came from the UK. Expensive (10 bucks a piece) but nice.

BTW - there is no such thing, as far as I know, as 'Ditson-style' cutaway. (I could be wrong). The only one I've seen is the one I build back when. I got the 'fallaway' part from an online gallery of Bourgois guitars, but they weren't Ditsons.
