Osage orange D-style guitar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I’m very fond of the wood ‘osage orange’, which is in the Mulberry family, and comes from the US midwest. I got a few sets from Luthier Tim McKnight, and I like it so much, I have kept the 3 instruments I built with it for myself. This is a big dreadnought sized guitar with a voice that can cut through a lot of old-time fiddling!
