Progress on new guitars for 2021

The guitar has a specially treated inlay cut into the body made from Maple. This was achieved using 2-3mm single cutter routers. The inlay (Maple) is injected with a green coloured acrylic polymer at high temperature and pressure. Where there are open pores, the polymer will penetrate the Maple it giving colour but also hardening it. That does make it more difficult to work with but you get a very individualistic effect to add to your work. I think its great and well worth the time.

Well the first new model for 2021 is well on its way now. It is still in progress and I need finish soldering the electrics in and finishing and staining the neck and head. It will be interesting to see and hear the final product.
