Just finished this one. Actually it's a 2017 model that my dog knocked off it's stand and busted the top beyond repair. So, I made another top out of some rare redwood sinker. I'ts 150 year old wood under water.
I didn't expect it to be be this good because of the weight of the wood, heavy and dark, but it turned out really good.:mandosmiley:

no, I've never posted this one. I've been building quite a few of these. It's my own design and I love building them. This one sure has tone. Power and bottom end. Plays so easy too. I'm stringing another one up today.
Thanks

yea Skip, the sinker top. It's a one piece top too. I sure don't have an unlimited supply of these. I'm surprised at how it sounds. Stringing another one today with the bookmatched mate to this one. I'll let you know how it sounds.

Ken, there must be some magic in those sinker tops! Martin's sinker spruce-topped guitars are getting great reviews, and I'm guessing your sinker redwood sounds mighty good as well. I will say that I'm real pleased with my 1850 redwood-topped A!
