Default The build begins ... officially

Well folks ... things are about to get real ... fast! When I see the gathering of materials like this it can only mean one thing. Launch is imminent!

Although you have seen some activity prior to now, most of that was to facilitate getting the fretboard and headstock ready for inlays (by Larry Robinson). But now the build is getting ready to start. Ryan told me mid-February and he wasn't just a whistling Dixie!

We will be picking tops soon. I've got goosebumps!

Hope you enjoy the ride as much as I know I will!

Thanks Wayne. Maybe I'll tote this one along to our next AGF gathering!

You must be getting super excited!
You bet Kevin. Over the edge!

Thanks Jon! I know you must be anxious to see that Mahogany beauty under finish. Can't wait myself.

I will echo the crowd here, Ebony is a great choice for those woods and oh my Lord those woods. They are outstanding and look at the deep richness of the colors coming out with some naptha or whatever it was......YIKES
Yup! Guess your SJ gave me the fever. Have to say it has been wonderful working with these guys. You and I are going to have to play our OMs in the same room someday ... soon!
Life is like a box of chocolates ....
