Design session and wood selection

Ian and his lovely woman Sam visited recently for a design session in the workshop. Sam is particularly lovely – especially to us because she has commissioned this custom build for her man. We spent a very enjoyable few hours going over the spec and came up with the design you see here. I have all of the wood to start the guitar and now after it has had a little time to settle I can’t wait to get cracking! Watch out for weekly updates here on the Bailey Blog.
