HI Glen. I am pleased with it. It has good power and sustain. I used my regular techniques on it. Hauser fan braced. Spruce top. Indian rosewood body. It took a lot of research on my part to try to find out the scale/body/saddle ratios. Turned out to be basic common sense after much study. The client (Eric Dickerson) is a serious student and is working with Andreas Koch by Skype here from California. I am pleased to share info about it if there is interest.
Thanks for the contact.

I see my quick reply did not post. Thanks for the contact Glen. It turned out very good indeed. Regular Engelmann spruce single top, Hauser fan pattern, Indian Rosewood back/sides. Very good response and sustain. Plenty of power. Quite a success really. It was a quite daunting to figure out the scale/body/saddle sweet spot ratio. After much hair pulling it turned out to be common sense. The originators and gurus of this instrument must have gone through the same thing. I am pretty sure it evolved for them the way it did for me. The client (Eric Dickerson), San Diego, California is working with Andreas Koch by Skype. It has been a rewarding experience for me to built it. I hope to get to do it again some day. Thanks for showing the interest.
