Guitar 903 – Out the door!

September 4, 2011

Devin and I finished his guitar yesterday.  Finished enough to where I could send it home with him.  Boy howdy, does that guitar sound good.  Strong balanced tone and damn if I didn’t get the fret leveling done right the first time.  Maybe all that practice has proven useful.



Devin will need to bring it back to apply finishing cosmetic touches.  Polish the nut and saddle, dress and polish the frets, blacken the fretboard, install a strap peg and the pick guard.

Guitar 1202 – New Rosewood OM

September 4, 2011

I received a deposit to get this guitar started.  This will be an Indian Rosewood OM with fancy shellwork.  The fretboard will be inlaid with a thorn and vine MOP and paua.
