Very nice!

Walnut can give a fantastic tone and it looks great too.

Thanks colins, this is the second guitar in a row using black walnut, and coincidentally both guitars were both commissioned by local players. I could not be happier with the look and sound of walnut.

Looks to be a beautiful guitar, Bill.

I've never played a black walnut guitar--it would be cool to try one out sometime.

Great work!

Very Pretty indeed
 
I have a Claro Walnut/Sinker Redwood RT2 and it sounds really REALLY good.

This axe is sure a looker! Whoooeeeee

Nice work!

Play and sing 🎶 every chance you get! And have a lovely Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Solstice/Festivus!

Bill, I really like the colors that the abalone exhibits, more colorful than usual, and really complements the rest of the instrument. (Which is also pretty nice, too.)

Bill, that is a lovely guitar. And I'm with you on Black Walnut, it is a wonderful timber on all counts.

Thanks Nemoman, it seems as though the popularity of black walnut guitars is on the upswing, so you should be able to get your hands on one to check out in the future.
Great work!
