   This page will be up dated on a fairly regular bases. Next to playing and making guitars, playing with this technology is great fun.

   I have just started on two small jumbos. ( I'm calling them 'small jumbos' because they are on the small side of the jumbo parameters: 16 1/4 to 17 1/2 inches at the lower bout. These two are 16 3/8 at the lower bout.) Just finished the body mold, and machined the wood for the body. The sound board on both will be sitka spruce, the sides and back of one will be rosewood, the other mahogany.

Putting 27 ft. radius on back of bridge plate.

So far so good.
  Just thought it to be a good idea to radius the bridge plates. It does seem to work well, so why stop now.
  The two of these guitars are going to be same in all aspects, except one is rosewood and the other mahogany.
  When they are done I will record them both, and place sound bits on this site.
