26. Photo shoot

Carolan’s been very busy since Nick added the finishing touches, making friends with guitarists and admirers alike, many of whom will feature in future blog posts. Despite a busy social diary the team manged to book a slot for Carolan to attend a studio so we could capture some photos of our baby.

We can’t stop looking at the lovely figuring in the flamed Maple on the back and sides. The use of light coloured woods all round gives a very distinctive look, Carolan certianly stands out in a crowd …

… and we can’t stop playing with the removable soundhole on the top, as discussed in blog post 19: Smell. Some guitarists who have played Carolan say it sounds better for the player with the soundhole taken out. It’s like your own personal monitor!

… and finally, we’re still checking that the codes work!
