The finished result :
Friday morning we worked a big hour mostly doing small retouches and then with Rémi we had to do a small paperwork for the project. After that Rémi took some time with me to prepare an archtop set of walnut for me ! We had to get a huge plank from his tree chop it off, surface plane them and cut some ribs on another one. It was really interesting to see the process of preparing a guitar set.
In the afternoon we went for a walk in the town near by to see the old castle, had diner together and went to see an electric Hurdy Gurdy concert in the evening. Interesting people out there mostly carvers of all sort and artists. If you want to check the guy out just type "hurdy gurdy Guilhem Desq" and you will find him on YouTube. His dad is making them for 20 years now so the one he's playing is actually hand made by himself.
Here are some pictures of Rémi's workshop :
Notice his guitars with cedar and spruce, Rémi went to a conference and the guy was studying those two materials and his conclusion was that both of them together, on scientific tests, are better then just one of them. So Rémi had the idea to make this his signature and it's working quite well to get peoples eye's on the instrument !
