Hey Justin,
What a beauty you have coming.... May you have many, many hours of playing bliss! John's guitars are second to none.. I know, because I have a 00-12, Beeswing Mahogany/European Spruce. Impeccably made, great projection, incredible string separation and just the right amount of overtone. Resonance for days. John's guitar will make you a better player, because it's clarity will demand it.

Small update, but it's all I've got!

This is turning out excellent! But what's up with the nude Barbie dolls on the pipe?!

justonwo 06-16-2016 03:53 PM

Oh, John attaches those to firecrackers and blows them up as a hobby.

The first thing I thought when I saw it was that it looked just like what Howard did. Now I know why. Very generous indeed and very attractive.

It's gonna be one of your favorites.... CIRCA does it as good as they come!

Man oh man that purfling! I LOVE it! :) I still have a bit of a wait for mine and I can't wait. This looks like a stunner! Congrats to you!

I so look forward to hearing all about it. It is going to be awesome.

justonwo 08-05-2016 08:51 AM

It's very close now . . .

LouieAtienza 08-05-2016 08:56 PM

Juston that looks beautiful... The purfling almost shimmers like the abalone...

This is super impressive and will go as a matching pair to your Klepper/Schoenberg soooo well because of the overall aesthetic and specifically the binding. :) Super happy for you!
