The Supremita


The Supremita is a short guitar only 25 inches long with a 17 inch scale. The sound box is made from a small Calidad Suprema cigar box. I've discovered that these smallish boxes yield the best results with light strings tuned fairly high. These strings are .022, .015, and .011 tuned AEa. The neck was carved out of a square piece of reclaimed pine. This is the first guitar I've made with a neck and heel carved from one piece of wood. It is also the first with an angled back headstock.
