These are pictures of a new guitar made by luthier Jeffrey Elliott for Portland guitarist David Bertman, who says they worked together on the design over a long period of time.
Top: European Spruce
Back and sides: European Maple
Rosette and headstock veneer: Amboyna Burl
I got to play this guitar a few days ago and I loved it — the way it sounds, the way it feels, and the way it looks. Jeff has kindly allowed me to post a few pictures here to remember it by.
Three pictures of the interior taken through the guitar’s soundport.
Light shines through the beautifully translucent back of the guitar, seen through the sound hole.
