The steel string guitar is my favorite guitar to play and build. I have completed quite a few steel strings so far and I asked Katie Weilbacher, a very gifted photographer (and awesome person), to photograph several of them. Below are some of my favorites:
Ziricote back and sides with Paua Abalone backstrip on a Concert model.
Engelmann Spruce top on a Small Jumbo
Claro Walnut back and sides on a Small Jumbo
Sitka Spruce top on a Concert model – the Madagascar Rosewood bridge is beautiful.
Paua Abalone rosette with B/W/B purfling.
Claro Walnut headstock with Paua Abalone Routen logo inlay.
Custom butterfly inlay against Madagascar Rosewood.
