Ok, another guitar in the making; a 21" scale length terz guitar. The idea of this guitar is that the pitch (and tension) of the strings is the same as if a normal guitar were capoed at the third fret but with a much smaller body.

Modelled after one of his own guitars, the customer has asked for a simple guitar with little ornamentation but using beautiful woods. Back, sides and neck are of mahogany, soundboard is bearclaw sitka spruce, binding is Koa, fingerbaord, bridge and head veneer are are Ziricote. Its going to make for a very nice (if tiny) guitar!

I have some nice comissions lined up this summer so watch this space...
