Forest-salvaged, segmented Myrtle with a forest-salvaged Sitka Spruce top. The scale length is standard but the body and neck are slightly smaller making this a nice choice for smaller players. It's got the tight, focused tone of a small-bodied guitar with just enough warmth to keep it balanced. 

The back and sides of this guitar were made from a single piece of highly figured Myrtle that was too small to make a traditional guitar out of. Kevin Conner of Wood from the West milled it into long thin strips meant to be used to make a lute. 

I assembled those strips into overlapping segments to create the back and sides. It's beautiful and practical too. Our planet is running out of large pieces of traditional tone woods. I believe the future of guitar-making lies in finding creative ways to make stunning instruments out of smaller pieces of salvaged wood.
