I really like the peghead.
And speaking of pegs, in that shot with the tools spread out, there's a sweet looking tuner off to the side. What is that little gem?

Me too! When I saw examples of Bruce's take on the slothead design, I knew I had to have it. It'll be my first...hopefully I'll catch on quick about restringing lol.

It is awesome how everyone is always so complimentary of others work in this forum.

So many luthiers...so many choices....I should commission 10 at once and have a guitar build off like they do with motorcycles

Oil varnish?
Does the sweetness never end?
Nothing looks like a varnish finish...well, other than varnish.
It's a lot of work, but the end result is beautiful.
Good on ya.

Steve
