a little background. years ago, i damaged my shoulder and was unable to lift my arm around even the smallest acoustic guitar. enter the washburn rover. it's tiny - they say it's the smallest acoustic guitar and it may be. i was able to play it, and i was so grateful to have something to keep playing. the big catch is that i disliked the neck and the nut width, which was uncomfortably tight at 1 11/16s - i usually prefer 1 13/16ths or 1 7/8s, and it really does make a difference to me. so i contact washburn to ask if they'll build me a rover with a wider nut. there are some guitars they can customize, but this isn't one of them. drat! as soon as my shoulder improved, i sold my rover. i'm having problems again playing acoustic guitars, but this time my husband leaps into action. he finds we have enough sitka spruce to make a rover-sized top, enough mahogany left to make rover-sized backs and sides and some more stuff. we figure out measurements, and he's on it! he's now got the top, back and sides almost done, the bracing is done and a very nice rosette finished and installed. he free-bent the sides, and most of the sanding is done. some parts are on the way from stewmac. he sent me these pics from his phone after i posted this thread but i'm really happy about this as while bass is my main thing, i've played guitar since the late '60s, and i really want to play again. and it's such fun having the build going on - we both chose some elements including the wood for the rosette, and i can visit my future guitar as it sits on his workbench.
