Good evening.
Wow, that’s beautiful.

I would like to try guitar making, both acoustic and electric. I’m an experienced woodworker I’ve spent a lot of time studying lutherie off/on for a few years. I have a couple books, I’ve watched a lot of videos. I planned for 2020 to be the year of making my first acoustic, but some other important things changed my plan for that year. Still on my short list. Perhaps I will begin later this year.

Any advice?

Thx, rink

When you imagine doing something, it often comes true.
And it comes out so naturally that it feels like you already knew how to do it.

Alex,
I don't play, BUT that's one of the most visually appealing guitars to me I've seen!!
With your sanding/shaping, as mentioned above, the first thought was "Organic" :)

Very interested in how you did this feature?

Do you have any pics of that stage?
I "Think" I know how you did it, but a picture or explanation would be appreciated.
Might help me with some of my slabs and found woods(?).

BEAUTIFUL craftsmanship!!

Hello, thanks.

I have some pictures of the process.
But to learn how to do it on Vcarve it's a little tricky to go here unless I made a series of posts or video, I don't know.
I have some videos where I teach some things on my youtube channel:
www.youtube.com/nbsdesign3dcncguitars

Woods There are several stores that sell wood for guitars and in the USA it is easier to find the best quality and best price.

Attached are more 2 basses I did also with VCarve and another 3d

so you gave me a bunch of thoughts to play with...Thanks!!
You do beautiful work!
I tried that link in Firefox and Edge and kept getting a Youtube 404 "Not Found" :(
