Introducing Jedidiah Planet Saving Guitars artist Spencer Elliott

I’m extemely excited to announce that Spencer Elliott plays one of my guitars in his brand new debut record “Some Forgotten Colour” which was released this morning. Spencer has now joined an elite group of the world’s top guitar soloists by recording this album with Antione Dufour for Candryat records, the world’s top label for fingerstyle and soloist guitar artists.

In this album Spencer crafts incredible original compositions each as unique as is his own style. Spencer’s incredible skills as a player and performer match his love for music and his talent as a composer. In this album he plays a Jedidiah Jumbo In many wild tunings including drop tunings as low as drop B!

Jonathan’s guitar.

Jon! Here’s some pics of your guitar!

 

First pic is gluing on the braces to the new soundboard with a go-bar deck (which is an ancient Chinese technology in fact)

All set up to glue the top on! Look at those clamps!  Beauties!

This bad boy is the special jig which holds the router to cut perfectly square recesses for the binding and purlfling to be glued into. Believe it or not these are not just decoration.  The many layers of different coloured wood increase strength in a critical area tremendously!

I love this pic!  It shows good detail on the recess which will be filled with binding and purfling.  Such a good way to reinforce the edge of the guitar!

Fingerboard with a slight fan.

Prepared and glued on the fingerboard last night. .5 inch fan on Oscar’s guitar. The neck as you can see remains uncarved at this stage, and there is an assortment of making tape still un-peeled here and there. The soundboard is also smeared with various gunk in this photo. It will need a good re-sanding before I continue with applying lacquer.


Aniline dye applied by spray!

Pore filling and dye.

This stage, has been a bewildering whirlwind of taping. Carly putting tape on, then pulling tape off!  A fair bit more work than I had anticipated, and have been keeping my fingers crossed…. Always asking myself: odds this the best order of operations?  Will I have to redo something of I do it on the wrong order? Moving slowly and cautiously today!

Newfangled tape

Now I’m taping off the areas that I do not want dyed black; so as to shellac them to prevent the dye from penetrating. Note the black line I’m following with the tape. It is 0.5mm wide, giving me a small margin for taping discrepancies/leeway!
