So very proud of this picture

So very proud of this picture - this is Gavin Ferris playing the Catherwood Dragon Guitar - I drew the body shape to be held and played within the engineering parameters laid down by my clever Luthier husband Dr John Catherwood. The details - our bog oak Drumlin inlay and the bridge I drew shapes for, for the headstock I designed and burned the Catherwood logo and the Dragon herself I burned onto the top of the soundboard with the #firewriter I keep going on about. Gavin played it for the first time beautifully and memorably at the Ards International Guitar Festival a few weeks ago. Lovely photo taken by the really talented Michael Barbour / 2nd Shooter.

My dragon burn finally finished, so the guitar goes back to the workshop @catherwoodguitars to be prepped for finishing, then bridge, tuners and strings, can’t wait to hear it, very excited. #dragon #guitar #wip #pyrography #handbuilt

Second days burn on the Dragon Guitar @catherwoodguitars #pyrography – very rough bridge blank to show position, the sweep of the tail echoes the curve on the bridge. #wip
