A second Steinbeck D guitar
After nearly a year I’m building a second Steinbeck D. Martin Simpson took the first, and while I hadn’t received an order for a second, I loved it so much I decided to build one.
The combination of depth and ring, and the sweet instrument it became when capoed high up, were the most exciting sounds I’d heard for years; I wanted to hear them again.
As it happened, I started building in the morning and in the afternoon the phone rang. It now has a home to go to.
Here are a few progress photos.

Sides bent to shape and glued to neck and tail blocks
