Size B frame with double mat
The fhole has been changed from the original concept in the following ways - the fhole is now an exact replica of a languedoc fhole. it has a sleeker form, and the bottom curve is not as pronounced. It has been more appropriately angled as well. Look at the fholes on the print itself and you will see it is a better match. But, due to these artistic choices in the design, it does become overall smaller than the original posted frame.
All current orders will be contacted concerning this change, including those already delivered. There had been some references to this f-hole evolution process in the updates but I did not make it as explicit as I could have. The above full shot and close up below are a good representation of the expected shipped product. (This frame is a size B+, meaning it was made a bit larger all around for a wider mat than the noted 1.5 border)
As the frame is made in different sizes, the placement of the fhole will consistently sit centered on the 1/3 horizontal point. (Utilizing the principle of the rule of thirds.) That keeps it oriented in proportion with the height of the frame. With 2 sizes of print, and differences between matted and unmatted, the alignment relative to landmarks on the print may vary.
This update to the f-hole was done as a design improvement, however there has been a question raised about this design change. The original picture that the first buyers saw was a different style F-hole. (pictured down below)
