Arlene Schmidt, Semi Hollow Electric Guitar (Student awards 2017)

Made for a year 12 major work. Over 300 hours of handcrafting making moulds and templates to shape the guitar's arch front and back, along with difficult joints. Almost the entire guitar is shaped with curved timber. Even the fretboard has a curve with a 12 degree radius for smooth playing. Arlene Schmidt, Year 12, St Ives High School, NSW.
