I’m starting a new guitar for a friend.  Jim has asked for a Macaferri style guitar with a cutaway (my first), a steel string neck width, and nylon strings.  I’ll be referring to this new guitar as a hybrid.

All the components have been ordered, or were already in hand.  Jim is responsible for the tonewoods and the tuners, which he will deliver later this month.  He’s chosen Red Cedar for the top and Palo Escrito for the back and sides.  The headstock will be open and use classical tuners.

Most of the design choices have been made, but much detail to be determined as I progress.
