I built this guitar during my stay at Mirko Borghino´s workshop in Italy, the model of this guitar is based on a Benedetto 17".
The construction of the complete guitar has been entirely at hand following the indications and advice of Mirko.
The internal reinforcements are X Brace.
For Varnishing I used a method that I learned from the violin luthier Mikele Dobner, it consists of oil varnish mixed with natural pigments and ground minerals, It is a natural varnish that provides a beautiful color and leaves the wood vibrating in a very natural way.
The sound sllection is a 12 pole Kent Amstrong floating pick up.
The Strings are Daddario ECG24- Chromes Jazz Light 11-50.
