Oria Prototype

This is the all walnut prototype of my single cut headless model “Oria”. I redesigned and reshaped it multiple times along the way and it's still a bit different than the production version I offer now. Just as all prototype builds, this is a personal guitar and I tried some different contour styles. Also, this was my first time building wooden control knobs.
