Another of my Dragon Guitars suited and booted.

A privilege to work on this lovely instrument built by the immensely talented Luthier Mr Stephen McClenaghan – who can now be found at the legendary Lowden factory in Downpatrick. Looking forward to hearing how it sounds.   #guitar #pyrography #hand built #instrument #dragon

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.

The Dragon

For those of you who have been following the story, the Catherwood Dragon Guitar is finished, sprayed and strung up, it sounds brilliant, and its new owner is utterly thrilled with it. A great project to work on, the design was inspired by #Gameofthrones #GoT, part of which is filmed here in Northern Ireland, and the madly talented new owner Gavin Ferris. I loved working with Gavin and the guys at Catherwood Guitars, it was a really special project. #pyrography #acoustic #guitar #art

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
