7-String Grand Auditorium, Spruce – Ziricote / Ebony, made in 2021

Finally the seventh string has also approached my steel-string guitars. The most special feature of this instrument probably is the fan-fretting, which provides a more even string tension especially for the lowest string. The top is made of exceptionally figured bearclaw spruce. The body is made of Zirikote with an Ebony center-strip.
