Electric Guitar

This was built using Queensland Maple for the back and neck, Rosewood fretboard and the top was Silky Oak (was a piece I already had), I was very impessed with the workability of the Qld Maple and the final result was way better than I expected.
I will definitely use Anagote timber again.
