Bespoke Builds: Tom Sands Model M "Marcella"

If you follow Tom Sands on Instagram, you already know you're in for a sumptuous array of build photos with this post!

The charismatic luthier is a master of making entertaining and informative videos about tonewoods, and he always gets his guitars in the hands of some of the UK's finest players before they ship out to their homes. With this gorgeous old-growth redwood and Madagascar rosewood Model M, officially dubbed "Marcella", there is no exception.

Have a listen to the legendary Will McNicol play his arrangement of Jay Ungar's "Ashokan Farewell" as you scroll through these shots. Marcella already has a home destination, but watch out for an in-house video and photos coming soon!

If you need more reasons to love Tom's work, here's his latest Mad rose video!
