Black Limba Build

14 Apr 2014

Posted by Phil Armstrong in Official Landscape Guitars

This will be my first build here on the site where I am not participating in a build along. Just to clarify I am an amateur so my methods may still need some refining but I will get the build finished.

The build will be two 00 guitars One like the all spruce build along with Greg and the other like the 1937 Gibson build along with Steve. So one flat top and one induce arch in a radius dish. I will build them both with the depth of the Nick Lucas build so the body will be 4.25 at the neck and 4.75 at the tail block.

I have two set off Black Limba  that I will use for Back and sides the tops will be snow Leopard Spruce and Strawberry Cedar from Mario.


The back (joined) weighs in at 182 grams cut to shape  and the sides at 282 grams.  still at 5" and 32" long

The bracing is spruce supplied by Mario and. I will used solid linings off Ash.

So far I have sanded the sides to .09 and  the back to .085. I have cut the backs to shape. The tops have been cooked at 200 degrees. and have been glued up RH for any off the glue process so far has been below 40%.

The necks will be Honduran Mahogany and will have a stacked heal and Scarf joint for the head stock.

The Head stock overlay will be Black Limba left over from the material form the back.

Binding and purfling are yet to be determined. Although I am torn between a light maybe maple for contrast or something darker than the   a for a more mellow look


Edited to correct my mistake in the type off wood for the back and sides.

AutoCAD 3-D 14 fret Neck File

13 Apr 2014

Posted by Charles J Cook in Help Forum

Does anyone have a 3-D AutoCAD file of a 14 fret neck that they would be willing to share?  I'm looking for a starter file to expand on for creating CNC toolpaths.
