#135 finished

This is a blanca. 100% my taste. Cypress back and sides, German spruce top and a soundport. Thats how I like them the most. Take a good look at the beautifull "baybeaclawing" on the soundboard. Yummi.
I will take a short break from the workshop, but will start the building of another blanca, this time without a soundport, within a couple of weeks.

Blanquita ready for French polish

I will start the FP when I have strings on the two other guitars that I´m building.
So, the two flamenco guitars that I have built this winter both have soundports. But that doesnt mean that I only build flamenco guitars with soundports. Actually I think that some 65 -70% of the flamenco guitars that i have built the last years have been without soundports. I personally prefer guitars with soundports, but I also like a good guitar without a soundport and I will start the building of such a blanca this spring.

Bridges

So, I decided to add my own personal touch to the bridge tie block.
I know very well that its not 100% perfect, but at least its made by me and not imported from Korea or Russia where its been mass produced.
