18 inch archtop guitar of curly maple with spruce top. The neck is 100 year old Spanish mahogany almost as hard as ebony. Pegs are new old stock imperials, front view not available. I made this in 1990.
Peghead of archtop inlaid with pearl, abalone, and foliage of boxwood. Fingerboard with pearl blocks inlaid with abalone floral forms. Rod cover not on guitar.
The improved universal style side bender I made in 1995. The frame is 3/4" aluminum, forms are 1/4" aluminum. Note the 3 strong springs in the waist rather than one. The waist caul is electrically heated, with rheostat. This bender is very fast and effort free.
