Hi all!I have Alvarez AD60sc model and let to change plastic nut and saddle into bone ones.Also changed plastic bridge pins.Sound improved a lot after this.Then i thought, last thing i could do is replace back.I asked luthier about it and he sed ok.
So couple of days ago got my guitar.I also was curious how much solid back affects the tone. Maybe as much as bone nut and saddle, maybe more.Sustain is really awesome.That maple tree he cut 1994, so dried 14 yearsBefore new back i used Martin 12-54 bronze steels, but now phosphor bronze 12-54 sounds better.Some pictures here:

Wow! You replaced the entire back! I'm impressed. You wouldnt have any details on how you did it all would you? maybe some in progress pictures?

I believe his luthier did it. Impressive, still.

Glad you like the sound you're getting. I've been considering two upgrades for my Seagull S6 this summer: tortoise binding replacement and replacement headstock veneer (of tortoise instead of brown plastic). In the tortoise veneer, I would have the Seagull logo done in abalone.

With those Tortis-material pickguards and veneers, I think this is a great idea. However, finding sheets of tortoise binding to match a sheet for a veneer is going to be a challenge. All tortoise is different.
Sincerely, Chad.
