Me too. Good grief Dennis, not sure what your guitar budget looks like, but the guitars coming along in your name are stunning! Congrats on what is going to be another amazing build!

sweet mother, of pearls- inlays, you got going there. Does that mad rose justice! There was a pink ivory tippin somewhere that might have been similar. But I prefer that mad rose, almost certain that's the d. maritima you got there.

wow D!

love that headstock and everything else. I had never heard the story regarding that "salmon" wood, very cool. I like that old picture of the men fishing, wonder if any of the perches ever fell in while in use!!

Default Progress pics ...

Looks to me like things are just about ready for finish. Bill tells me the pumice fill and French polish will begin very soon. I may get a chance to audition the Crescendo Bill brought to Woodstock with him. Looking forward to that! We expect this guitar may be finished by mid-November. I plan to go pick it up in person.

Incredible looking guitar! Love the sort of deco accents on the back. He did that gorgeous piece of madrose justice with that little touch. Great looking soundport. If this guitar sounds half as good as it looks already....

I had a chance to hear a great player giving a Tippin Crescendo a go today and let me tell you, it was out of this world. When the good players stopped and went away, I had a chance to give it a go and I will say it was tremendous. Filled the room with blooming sound that just seemed to build and envelop you in sound. I have no doubt that this guitar will do the same for Dennis.

Color me jealous!!!!

Thanks guys! Appreciate the kudos. Had a chance to meet Bill at Woodstock. He sure likes to have a good time!

He tells me done in a couple weeks! YaHoo!

I agree with Tom, the Crescendo he just delivered to Dream Guitars is a phenomenal guitar. Holy Moly! Delivered on all cylinders.
