The Birdseye Maple Custom-Auditorium

This auditorium body (OO) has  25.25 scale length with a 1 ¾ width at the nut.  It is handcrafted with Birdseye maple back and sides, a Red Cedar top, a mahogany neck, and a solid Birdseye maple headcap with an Abalone “G”.  Appointments include the BWBW purfling, wenge binding for the  body, neck and headstock, a wenge end wedge and wenge rosette with center abalone ring.  The fingerboard and bridge are also wenge.  Subtle abalone 4 mm dots are used for the fingerboard inlay.  End pin and the bridge pins are bone with abalone dots.  Tuning machines are open gear Waverly tuners with Snakewood knobs.  The finish is nitrocellulose lacquer with a very light amber.
