Here’s a gallery I’ll continue updating as I work through the construction of a new sugar maple and adirondack spruce TG-0-inspired tenor guitar.

Material selection

Creating and installing the rosette

Bracing the top and back plates

Testing out the Doolin-esque adjustable neck joint

I’m planning to use a new, fully adjustable neck joint on this guitar, inspired by the work of (former) luthier Mike Doolin. This enables easy adjustment of playing action by changing the angle of the neck, rather than changing the height of the saddle at the bridge. I’ve been using a fully bolt-off neck for some time, so this is the next logical step, right?
