Sam Leafe, Australian Blackwood Acoustic Guitar (Student Awards 2019)

For my HSC major work, I have made an acoustic guitar from Tasmanian blackwood (body), African mahogany (neck), strip ebony (fingerboard and bridge), cherry burl (headstock veneer) and Huon pine and eucalypt (headstock inlay). I also made the spruce and "black-white-black" binding material. Year 12, Knox Grammar School. Teacher: John Parker
