    This is my new guitar in its final stages, strung up and having a final setup. It's a copy of Segovia's Hauser except the spruce top is replaced by a cedar top. It's the 150th guitar (and first classical) from Texas luthier Vince Pawless. Should be shipped out in a week. Vince says it has great tone.

    Here's the back during the finishing. FWIW, it's Brazilian, but certified legally harvested.

    And a side, after finishing.

    That's beautiful. Is the finish a French Polish (shellac)? Did you go for 'standard' dimensions (e.g., 650mm scale, 52mm nut)?

    Top is French polish, back and sides not (can't remember what he uses, but high gloss).
