Adirondack/Mahogany OM With Soundport
This is my first attempt with a soundport, and was requested by my customer, after the build started, so I don't have any internal pictures, but it is reinforced with 1/16th" mahogany with the grain running perpendicular to the sides, and is approximately 7/8" in diameter; The port seems to allow the player hear the guitar better, much like the way a monitor speaker works. I look forward to building with other sizes and with the possibility of adjusting the main soundhole to accomodate for the port.
This guitar is bound with cocobolo rosewood, and has three lines of maple dyed green/red/green. The outer rosette ring is dyed maple green/red /green, and the inner ring is green/red/abalone/red/green.
The peghead face wood on this guitar is made from wood supplied by the customer, and was taken from an old log cabin in Cleburne County, Alabama that had been in his family's possession since the mid 19th century. I not sure exactly what species of wood it is, but my guess is it is a type of birch.
