CHARIS SJ S/N 444 Build Thread
Mastergrade Cedar top with Flame Maple back and sides
We were inspired to curate two cedar Charis guitars in the month of Jauary 2016 after playing a lovely cedar maple parlor that passed through the store earlier. Drawing on the warmth of cedar as a top wood, this first build is paired with gorgeous flame maple back and side to produce an articulate sounding guitar with a full bottom end.
 
Aesthetically, cedar has traditionally paired very well with the lighter shade of maple. Lined with highly contrasting flame koa binding to bring out the beauty of these tonewood, we are convinced this guitar will be a visual and tonal treat.
 
Here are some photos of the guitar under the skillful hands of Bill as we eagerly wait for its arrival in late February.
