Richard, 

Thanks for the comments on the classical guitar.  This is the first acoustic guitar build for me.  I was given a chunk of rough sycamore that turned out to be spalted and I thought I'd use that for the top.  The walnut sides and back are from lumber that my Dad (now deceased, God rest his woodworking soul) had purchased decades ago.   Making this was a challenge, to be sure.   I primarily used Roy Courtnall's  "Making Master Guitars" as a guide for construction.  I made a solera, forms, clamps, circle cutter for soundhole, binding, etc..., all of which are described in the book.  (I looked at some other good guitar building books but this one seemed ideal to me, as it has very good measured plans included, based on the guitars of some of the greatest builders.)  It's a fairly quiet instrument - the body is smaller, sort of parlour sized - but the sound is sweet, better on the low end.  Anyway, I learned a lot, so on to the next build.  Thanks again for the remarks.  I've looked at your page and am really impressed with all your work, and the videos.   Good luck with your next project.
