Guitar Luthier from TX

I got my start in guitar building, love doing it. However I don't know much about woodworking in general. I am looking forward to starting some new projects and learning along the way!
I will try to keep up with y'all and hopefully will learn a bunch!

You can glance at my website. sorberaguitars.com I've got quite a few galleries of my work there. It's a fine craft, but just like everything else out there... There's just so much more I want to learn!

Man, I took a look at your site, really good stuff! I especially like the grain and figure heavy woods you're using for the sides and back and I like the off center fret markers. Question for you: It seems like you've added a second sound hole on the top of your acoustics, is that your "trademark"? I'm curious as to how it affects tonal quality.

the black limba/ spruce acustic sounds good, do you have a sound clip of the purpleheart? I have been thinking about making a purpleheart banjo rim, haven't jumped out and done it yet though

Nice Stuff! I'm taking a class right now on Lutherie.

What kind of wood is this: http://www.sorberaguitars.com/images...s/rosette1.jpg I really like how it looks.

Cello. The wood in the Rosette there is spalted maple. That is actually my personal guitar. I love it.

Taylormade, yes that second soundhole is my trademark. It definitely changes the sound. It makes it sound great to the player, almost as if he was standing out in front of the guitar! It also makes it sound more 3D to everyone around it. The other thing it does is it is great for if you are recording the guitar in a studio, place a mic in front of it and you are good to go! Lastly, the shape of it actually makes the sounds coming out of it more smooth and even.
