I've designed an "African Big 5" range of guitars, I have built the first of the 5 and it is my effort at raising local (South African) and international awareness of the tragic plight of our rhino's which are being poached at an alarming rate (over 400 last year). The animals are butchered (google images "rhino poaching") for their horn. It is pulverised and used in "the East" as an aphrodisiac. Of course it does not work as it consists of the same substance as human finger nails. About the guitar. It is completely handmade from African materials and inspired by the proportions of two of my earlier offerings and the pre-war depression era all-mahogany guitars. I have heard both the Martin and Santa Cruz modern versions and like this kind of sound more than any other steel string acoustics. I used all sapele for the body and neck, with figured imbuia for the f/b, bridge and headstock veneer. The inlay is a pink ivory wood. 650mm scale and IMO sounds terrific, which is a surprise, I did not expect sapele to work this well as a soundboard. Anything that can be done to spread our "rhino" message will be greatly appreciated.
