  1. Super cheap. All woods are locally sourced (in the Philippines). Also, we don't have to worry about shipping when ordering internationally.
  2. This is actually a prototype guitar with ribrest. Hope everything will go accordingly.
  3. It is currently in the process of creation. Gmelina wood is also a sustainable since it is from a fast-growing tree. There are only a few samples for it's tonal characteristics in the internet but I will post a video of it's sound after the guitar is finished. Thank you for your interest.
  4. Keep writing comments, clicking the like button and I will keep on posting. Thanks!

  6. Update: I got a chance to chat with the luthier. He said its "real" tortoise celluloid shell not a photo realistic one. So its safe to say that its not from an endangered species. Please dont burn me at the stake.
  7. Thanks for the advice. I will also talk to the luthier personally about the material. I hope its not from an endangered species. This is also my original purpose of posting since I'm know little on materials.
  8. My thoughts exactly. That's why I will be picking up the guitar myself so I can check out his shop as well... with a little R&R while I'm there.
  9. Thanks for the comments. Will be doing a sound test as soon as I recieve it. These photos were taken by the luthier by the way. He installed a real tortoise shell pickguard.
  10. I did actually. You can Google them if you like to check them out: Ferangeli Guitar Handcrafter.
  11. Yes. Truss rod access will be at the soundhole. I also noticed that they shaped the neck before milling the slot. Weird but they are building guitars since 1919.
  12. Neck glued with the ebony board. No lacquer nor stain application yet. The neck beside it is Sapele. I chose the cedar because they say its lighter.
