2006 – Scott’s Koa / Sitka OM

Scott’s guitar was presented as a gift in celebration of his graduation with a Masters of Science in Information Systems from Indiana University in the Kelly School of Business in 2006. It has a bearclaw sitka spruce soundboard with koa back and sides. Scott’s birthstone in inlaid in the end of the fretboard.

This is my first guitar with a laminated neck, carved from dimension lumber. It was also the first with a bound fretboard.

Curly maple binding, ebony headplate, fingerboard and bridge, abalone / koa rosette, and Oxford PSL lacquer finish.
