@Edward - when you say you are using ordinary sewing thread for the guitar strings, I wondered if you were aware of the metallic embroidery threads you can buy? If not, click HERE. These might be too bright but you could always 'tarnish' it down a bit with something...? Any Michaels Store has these threads.

It usually takes me about a month to make a mini guitar, but of course it can take longer if it is really ornate or complicated.

Edward,

 

How long does it take from start to finish on the mini guitars?

J.D., Charles and Ginger,

Yes, I love collecting the martin soundhole cutouts and I have one for each visit I have made to the martin factory.  I was honored to be part of the very first tour of the factory in January of 2000, the new Millennium, and I have the soundhole cut out to prove it!  I have them on display in my guitar cabinet in my living room. Great fun...Edward

Here are a few more shots of the mini-Martin 12 string that appeared in the Martin Sounding Board Newsletter...yep, that's a real penny, no Photoshop here! :-) Edward
