New Bayou Build: Deluxe Edition

Hey Everyone!

Here is our latest build. It's a deluxe version of our Bayou with upgraded Gotoh® hardware and a beautiful Camphor wood top. We chose to use Camphor wood after seeing some pictures of its amazing grain patterns. It proved a bit of a challenge to work with as it had many small knots and crevices but the results were well worth the effort required!

When finishing the guitar we decided not to fill all the knots and grooves as we felt it would spoil the character of the wood. We did, however, break with tradition slightly and gave it a full Nitrocellulose lacquered finish on the top to really bring the best out in the grain. Check out the pics and see what you think!
