Ebony Classical Guitar Bindings, New Neck for a Lacote Style Guitar

 


There is still one guitar in the shop for repair, with the other repairs out the door I have some extra time to catch up on other work, like glueing a stacked heel onto the shaft of a neck for a copy of an 1830’s Rene Lacote guitar...



...to start work on ebony bindings for the latest guitar, one with a European spruce top and Canadian cypress back and sides...


...then to play with ideas on how to brace the new top for the Lacote style guitar. It is a tiny guitar, the top is sitting on a template for one of my full size guitars. The ebony with be the reinforcement patch under the bridge, which will be an original style pin bridge.
