Number Two

The second CBG I've built, which I call my 'Ollie' is constructed much the same as the first, but the headstock is designed a little differently and the fingerboard is poplar laminated to an oak neck. 

The box is an Oliveros, lest the 'Ollie' tag, with soundholes cut in the shape of a musical f-hole design.  Like the first, frets were placed in critical positions using the neck of my Martin accoustic as a pattern for proper location.  This too is electric, but again like #1 it can be played accoustically.  The sound is different, because of the difference in design and materials, but still vibrant.
