Leoa Prototype

Prototype of the "Leoa" model and first ever Montag Guitars 8-string. It features a beautiful one-piece ovangkol neck that is reinforced by four carbon fiber rods and a two way trussrod. I was using bronze frets for the first time here. I made a video showing some bits of the building process. Go check it out.
