    I didn't want to bomb in on the other cherry wood thread, but thought the group might like to see these three cherry-bodied projects. Two are complete and one still in progress.

    The first is a fully hollow thin bodied acoustic with a western red cedar top, walnut bridge and walnut veneered back.


    Next is an acoustic/electric hybrid with a figured maple top and no back veneer. I didn't choose the best example of the cherry I had for this non-veneered back. Oops!


    The third will get a slightly wider neck and nylon strings with a Seymour Duncan pickup system.


    I'll try to dig up some build pics if anyone is interested.

    is "art decco" the correct term for the builder's influence?

    I really like it - and the acoustic adaption looks good too.

    Peace - Deeve

    That comes to my mind, too, Deeve.
