You've met Arthur nearly 2 years ago, but now he has a "mate". Ofcourse who else could it be but Guinevere?
I carved the callas for her over the summer and a luthier in Kentucky then built her for me. He did an absolutely amazing, gorgeous job. She is just beautiful- and her finish is just so smooth, you want to keep stroking her! Her sound is sweet and lovely as well. I couldn't be more pleased.
Here is one of the carvings ready to be sent off. I did a large calla and a smaller one for the other side. The body is quilted maple and the neck and pillar are birds eye maple.
Here are the two sides so you can see the 2 callas, and the Truitt levers on her.
Some close-ups of the carvings...
And here they are together... Arthur and Guinevere!
