An NK Forster Model C-HO

This week I’ve been getting on with a nice Model C-HO in Indian rosewood and European spruce for a chap in England. Off to the sprayers soon Martin! He’s gone for a long 650mm scale. It’s ages since I’ve made a guitar with a long scale. We used 650mm all the time when I worked for Sobell, so it’ll be interesting to compare the feel when she’s all strung up.

On my posher work I always make a compensated zero fret. What a hassle! But it does improve the intonation down the bottom end some.
