I made a Hauser '37 style classical guitar as part of an online guitar making class organized by David Schramm.I had no previous woodworking experience so my expectations were pretty low. To my great surprise, the guitar I made ended up being a fine sounding and very playable instrument.
The top is made of Western Red Cedar, the back and sides are Alaskan Yellow Cedar. It has an Ebony fingerboard and Spanish Cedar neck.
