Pete Turner Resonator Guitar
Terry is having a handmade guitar built by Kent guitar maker Pete Turner.
I spent several hours at Timberland, Tonbridge, Kent selecting wood for the guitar. Finally settled on Koa wood for the body and ebony for the fingerboard.
Photos show the wood chosen, machine for bending wood to guitar shape, back of the guitar and work in progress on workbench.
More details to follow once there is more progress to report.
