14 String Dreadnaught

This is the first dreadnaught that I've built with the soundhole located in the side. The amount of sound that makes it's way to the players ears is a definite plus. This guitar has mahogany bk/sides and a redwood top. The nut width is 2 5/16" and the end of the fretboard is 2 7/8" wide! As with most of the instruments that I build it was made to fit the person, which in this case is well over 6ft tall and has problems finding gloves long enough to fit his hands. Instruments like this are a real challenge and I really enjoy the whole process of designing and building them.
