Long may you run

It's time to depart with Pekka's guitar.
It plays very loud, deep and clear. The best of my builds so far, hands down. One of the best I've played... If all the koa/lutz guitars turn out alike, I'm a convert.

Here's the last pics, well a bunch of them.
Here´s a link to a video played with this guitar. Might take a while to get started, thou.

The flashlight brings out the flashy bearclaw

Here you can see the Manzer Wedge. Because of it, the pretty big sized guitar sits on the lap very comfortably

Inside view through the toneport - which makes a big difference tonewise too!

There's an 8x8mm patch in the heel. I accidentally overdrilled the bolt hole. Sorry, Pekka

Cedrala Odorata neck

Schertler tuners look nice - modern & vintage at the same time

The back is still a stunning piece (esp for the $42 price on ebay). Actually I planned to build of it to myself, but I'm sure it's going to a good home.

#4 is delivered. I saw a big smile. Heard nice compliments. A luthier made happy.

And yet many "smiles and smiles to go" - Pekka :)

Janne, this is just awesome! After building 2 1/2 electrics I just feel the need to make an acoustic for myself - I want to talk to you once I've gone through all your blog entries. Miika

Miika, I've been following and admiring your work, and would be happy to share with you. You're most wellcome to visit my "workshop" in the near future. And bring at least the first two with you!
