The Vienna Secession Guitar

My current build is an ebony Master Model 2000 themed on Vienna's unique take on Art Nouveau from 1897 through 1914. Artists like Gustav Klimt, Otto Wagner, Koloman Moser and others introduced a thoroughly modern style that still seems fresh today. I visited Vienna again in October 2022 and was enthralled with the idea of building a guitar that captured the spirit of those wildly creative days. Here are a few in-progress photos. Come and play it at the Fretboard Summit in Chicago Aug. 24-26 and at the Woodstock Invitational Oct. 13-15, 2023.
