Holst Custom Stringed Instruments 2016
Sheets of veneer ready to glue and press
Each laminated plate can be used as a top or back as they are symmetrical. Additionally, they can accommodate both sharp and rounded cutaways as well an non-cutaway designs. The interior of each plate requires only light sanding with 220 grit paper to prepare the surface for brace installation. Overall specs are:
- 7 layers of cross grained wood with the outer layer of one-piece curly maple. Each inner layer is Eastern hard maple or birch depending on availability.
- Finished body dimensions are typically: 20" long, 16" wide lower bout, and 12" wide upper bout. There is enough gluing surface to allow for some variation in these dimensions, particularly the upper and lower bout widths.
Plates are generally made to order and will take 3 days for a single plate or one week for a set of plates to ship. Please specify curly or quilted maple outer veneer when ordering. Please feel free to contact me for more details.
