This classical spruce topped fan-braced guitar was built for Royce Watts, Texas. He likes the feel of a heavy guitar - my style of building is light rather than heavy, so I chose to use a very dense timber for the back and sides to add some heft - malaysian blackwood fits the bill. The bindings are of decorative snakewood, which is also used for the centre strip of the head facing. 650mm scale-length. Nicolo Alessi Hauser style hammered silver machines.
