Woodworker: Bernie LehmannThis guitar (5 in. thick by 15 in. wide by 41 in. long) is the latest design by Lehmann, a luthier for nearly four decades. The back is built like a lute with nine arched (and scalloped) ribs. Lehmann says the arch makes the guitar feel thin under the arm. A second port on the side projects the sound upward, allowing the player to hear what the listener is hearing. Finished with catalyzed urethane, the woods are quilted mahogany, Adirondack spruce, and ebony. The binding is ivoroid, a plastic that resembles holly.
