    The sound of a baroque guitar is quite different to that of a modern guitar - more delicate and with lots of 'campanellas' ('little bells') facilitated by the re-eantrant tuning, where the melody is between the thumb and fingers and rings out differently. This video gives a good example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC7JNE8TdmY
    That's one of the nicest things I have heard in a long time, thanks.

ID:	172603 Just spent a week making rims and have ended up with a dozen each of F and A styles.. I came across some nice figured maple and cut into rim slats.. With the scrap leftovers I guess I will form up the rest of the parts for the F style rims.. This batch has been exceptionally easy bending over the hot pipe.. Seems that some batches bend like butter when sawed with proper grain direction.. The weather has turned cooler so now's the time for the heat work...

    sliebers, It bent well. I had a bit of warping across thye side but that was operator error I think. I think I had the blanket too hot.

    The grain in that milti-piece guitar back is amazing, Jo. I am assuming it is multi-piece with the recurring pattern? Once again, lovely instruments.

    Thanks! And yes that's correct. It's multi-piece London plane.

    Couple of shots of my Dudenmonster project (slow progress) as I've glued the top to the sides. I made up some fresh hide glue, heated up the surfaces with my heat gun first to buy a little time. I didn't try to be too neat with my gluing but was surprised when I took the clamps off to see that I wasn't sloppy at all.

    I guess technically off my bench now... I just leveled the finish (Royal-Lac) and am waiting for it to cure.

    I also built the shelves and the picture frames for our new nursery!

    The K4 style, with aperture, Mandocello rim and soundboard just came out of the mold after the glue up.. Really happy with how it looks so far.. Check out the playlist of the build here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...YC8NYCNPNDb-xJ
