Maquette | maˈket |noun
a sculptor’s small preliminary model or sketch.

Although life size, I made this small section of a guitar as a birthday gift and to test how the combination of materials and their various colors come together.

Materials: ebony fingerboard; Indian rosewood back and sides; western red cedar top; Evo Gold (copper alloy) fret wire; ebony binding; spruce, poplar, and ebony used in creating the rosette (see sidebar: Making a Rosette); garnet french polish.
