Oh man!!? My wife would leave me. I could sweep up the shop and pick up a couple shifts at a nearby hospital. Live in your garage like Carl from Slingblade.

I thought my Kinnairds were amazing but it seems you have outdone yourselves again! wow, that is beautiful. Great work guy's :)

Wow, that is stunning! You out did yourselves again. I really like the slope to the cutaway on the FS. Is that sold or a LaConnor guitar?

nacluth 04-11-2018 08:05 PM

This guitar is destined for our dealer, so it will be available soon. Itís has the rich warmth of our FS sound that has always been my favorite of our models. Thanks for the kind words Tom and Dave.

We sure hope she will. She wanted it lighter than her baby Taylor. Itís approximately one pound lighter than that, so I think that will qualify.

Thanks, guys, your kind words are truly appreciated.

Are those bridge pin heads at both edges? How are they attached?

Thanks Rye for the positive strokes. Yes we did use bridge pinheads to tie the bridge design together. We sawed off the tops of the pins and glued them first to the bridge, and then with the bridge to the top. So, currently a decent amount of surface area has adhesive on it. We thought about mechanically attaching them to make them absolutely secure. However, since our client lives 5 minutes from us, we figured we would cross that bridge when we come to it. But we donít think we will. One of the perks of custom building - always trying something new!
