We’re not prone to idle hands at Dream Guitars, and neither is Tyler Robbins! In addition to the Cocobolo R.1 he’s building for us, he’s got another one in the works already, this time with Ziricote! Keep checking in as we update this latest build thread with photos and specs.

From Tyler: “This is not standard but was necessary on this build. The back was thinner then normal to start, so in order to be able to tune to the frequency that I needed, I chose this bracing pattern to increase stiffness so that I had room to bring it down to my target.”
"The finest collection of luthier-built instruments"
Dream Guitars has the finest collection of luthier built instruments I’ve ever seen in one location. Paul Heumiller works closely with the greatest luthiers on the planet to bring an amazing resource to the guitar community. His involvement in my recent album — he supplied and set up the guitars — was a bit like a dream to me!
