Steiny Ike Everly

Inspired by the Gibs J185 - J180, but even a lot more by the luthier Robert Steinegger (different width at upper and lower bout), her body's depth is also somehow different so as fit the Everly Brothers...

For me, after two or three years of building only electrics, it is with Steiny #1 in 2009 that serious things about lutherie began.
