Earlier this year I was overjoyed to open my email and find an invitation to the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase. I’d been wanting to exhibit in this show for quite some time. Builders, players, collectors and appreciators from all over the world are in attendance. It’s a truly wonderful time to chat with enthusiastic guitar lovers and finally meet the other builder’s we see around on the internet.
I started to think about what I would bring with me. Immediately I thought was a great opportunity it would be for me showcase a 2 1/2 year project I’d been working on- the Oxwood 00. I decided since I was also celebrating 10 years as a luthier I should build something very special. I chose the most beautiful set of Brazilian Rosewood I had in the pile and a wonderfully silky Lutz Spruce top. I paired it up with a second 00 build of Amazon Rosewood and Western Red Cedar. So, without further ado, here they are…and stay tuned for a more in depth post about my journey through finding my sound in the 00.
