  This guitar has a three piece back. The reason is I wanted to build a blood wood guitar, and the only way I could get the wood was in six inch pieces.  So I just decided to make it three piece.


   As the story goes, this person came to visit my shop to see how I do things, not knowing he really was looking to have me build him a guitar.  So after he played a couple of guitars I had on hand,  he noticed the Blood wood guitar in its beginning stages.  This guitars body was being sanded at this time. 


    Well it was love at first sight, he had to have it!  ​​It’s an amazing guitar with a very beautiful sound!!
