Darn!!

I simply must stop looking at these Olson guitar threads!!

JoeCharter 04-25-2012 02:16 PM

Thanks guys!

I agreed to this set sight unseen as Jim said he had kept a "special" piece. I'm so glad I trusted him.

No question this will be a winner. Enjoy the ride (as a forum, I know we do vicariously)!

Love "The Tree" mahogany...wow!

I am sure you won't be disappointed.

Jim's guitars are unbelievable.

Hey, Joe. Do you know if your "box" is taking shape yet?

I'm going to wait about two weeks before I email Jim about more pics of my build. Too bad Jim doesn't have live webcams in his shop :D

Hey Jon,

Nope, nothing on my end.

I promised Jim I wouldn't be all over him so I made my own picture of what my guitar will look like... ;)

Nice, but you also need to make a comp showing what "The Tree" back/sides will look like ;) j/k

The preciseness of all those little bits of abalone for the vine inlay is pretty amazing.

Yeah, I know Jim isn't too fond of taking "in-progress" pictures, so I'm trying to limit myself to once-a-month requests if I don't hear from him. It sure helps a lot with the wait and builds excitement.

OK so Jim rewarded my patience with a Saturday reply and a ton of pictures!

Wow, this is looking really good, Joe! I love the subtle contrast in color between the mahogany and cedar. The figure on the back is amazing. Proud to be in this batch with you :)

J.R. Rogers 06-02-2012 03:27 PM

Beautiful! Great pictures! I hope I didn't get any drool on his workbench. :)

Hey Jon,

That mahogany is going to get darker with the finish.

I'm mostly excited about the rosette and the fingerboard extension. And I can't wait to see the inlays! ;)

Yikes! A stunning Olson!
