Thanks everyone! I'm really happy with how this one turned out and also glad I finally recorded that song for one of my demos. The intro has been the first thing I play on every new guitar (or any guitar I'm playing for the first time) for the past 10 years or so. I like the mix of ringing notes and open strings -- really lets me hear the sustain and how much the guitar can sing. It only took me 10 years to finally getting around to learning the whole song!

Mike

I did a final photoshoot yesterday for this guitar...







For the next couple of photos, you can really see some of the key things I go for when I'm carving a neck. In this shot, if you look at the right side of neck you can see that the straight line continues behind the volute. I really try to keep these straight lines going as far as I can while still having a smooth and graceful transition. I find that a lot of necks flare out near the volute and heel -- not ideal especially if you like to wrap your thumb!







In case you missed it from my previous post, here's a video of it in action...

This guitar should be arriving at The Acoustic Music Company in the next week or so -- if you're in the area give it a try and let me know what you think!

Mike
