Another Heirloom Quality Handmade Electric Guitar in the Making

Using Rare Salvaged Local Mediterranean Cypress for this upcoming Thunder Child Veloce Guitar

This is the gorgeous back of anew Thunder Child Veloce guitar.

 

It is a salvaged piece of local Mediterranean Cypress. A lightweight and super responsive tonewood.

This type of lumber was used to create ancient stringed instruments in the Middle East. As far as I can recall it was also used for Italian harpsichords and in Spain it was used for Flamenco Guitars. A little bit challenging to work with, and that is why the guitar “industry” skipped it.

This specific body was made for a Thunder Child Veloce and went through a few shellac sessions. The polishing session will begin next week.
