Here is a new Petite Bouche guitar with rosewood back and sides and curly maple bindings. The neck is butternut and the top is cedar braced with four ladder braces ala Selmer 503. This small oval hole gives the guitar a little more bite with out reducing volume at all. Very responsive and well balanced.
Delivery day, in the hands of the new owner, Andy Page, at Django in June at Smith College, Northampton, MA last week. Andy is a music professor (guitar) at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. He is an active performer and studio musician as well. Some of you may know his excellent recording of waltzes, Musette Guitars, with Scot Wise. I am so happy Andy is playing one of my guitars.
