Gorgeous!!

Love the book shelves and drawers for picks and strings etc but the stand also needs something. A "cradle" at the top to catch the neck and a bar on the floor to stop the guitar from sliding ?

Beautifully crafted!

Thanks for the kind comments. The stand would work okay if the back of the guitar was flat. Regrettably it is slightly rounded and doesn't sit flush so the stand needs some modifications. The guitar and my son are 400 miles from me so this was a long-distance project in terms of guitar size width etc. I will make a curved piece for the guitar bottom that can be easily attached to the existing bottom piece of the stand. I may also make a u-shaped piece to hold the neck.

Thanks. Yes they are half blind dovetails. I used my Leigh jig to make them.

That is quite the guitar collection Gus. Thanks for your kind comment. As I recall I modified the stand to better hold the guitar but I don't seem to have a photo of it. Four years ago so at my age the memory......

Beautiful piece, Dennis. I noticed the guitar pick shape, like Earl mentioned, very appropriate.
