AGAINST THE GRAIN

2015 — Plano West Senior High School


Against the Grain is a guitarmaking project that I did in high school with the help of a local luthier: Frank Teng of Falcon Tone Design. The guitar features a smaller, thinner, and lighter than average guitar body that I specifically wanted to make because guitars are often quite heavy and often thick for my arms, and particularly for playing while standing up. Aside from a mostly pre-fabricated neck, most of the guitar is custom shaped, sometimes by hand.
