OO-12 FRETS

FIGURED HONDURAN MAHOGANY & RED SPRUCE

It's been a while since I wanted to build an OO-12 with Honduran mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla). I have always been fond of the small shapes, Martin produced in the past with this wood. So, I chose a magnificent soundboard in red Appalachian spruce commonly called Adirondack (Picea Rubens), in order to stay in this concept from a historical point of view.

This project is in line with the other guitar that will follow below, the OO-12 in African mahogany.

AFRICAN MAHOGANY & LUTZ SPRUCE

This OO-12 in African mahogany (Khaya Spp.) & Lutz spruce (Picea Lutzii), is intended to pair the OO-12 in Honduran mahogany & Adirondack I mentioned earlier.

 

The soundboard I chose is very close to its big sister's, in terms of density (even if it is not the same species). The built will be very similar, in order to be able to have a realistic comparison between these two instruments. I also wanted to build a guitar, closer to my base price.

HIGERILLA & LUTZ SPRUCE

I've built this OO-12 with a Lutz spruce ( Picea Lutzii) soundboard. It is similar in terms of construction, to the two previous models. When I started using alternative woods, Higuerilla (Micandra Spruceana) was one of the first to arouse my curiosity.

The OM that I built in parallel of this OO with this species, exceeded all of my expectations. So I can't wait to hear this guitar.
