    Hi from Spain.
    My name is Al.

    This is my new guitar (in project):
    Spain has very good luthiers: Do you know "Salvador Ibáñez" (1854-1920)? Born in Valencia, Spain?
    No, Really?

    I think if you say "Ibanez": You know! :D


    My luthier is: AP- Luthier. AP Custom Guitars (Spain).
    The best! In my opinion.:rolleyes:

    Body: alder.
    Neck: Maple.
    Fretboard: Rosewood.

    Continuation:

    This is a "Triqueta Celta", religious symbol of European peoples. The white ring is later, by Christianity. I liked for the 12th fret. My mather (rip) was celtic and Christian. I'm celtic... Was something very personal and own.

    This type of symbol is common in the North of Spain, West of France and Germany and South R.U.. Curiously, i see this "Triqueta" in the "Charmed" TV Serie ("Embrujadas" in spanish).

    Pearl mother and abalone.
    Of the highest quality.
