Default Neck Parts/Block

Some pics have come in from Larry. Here Larry has milled the neck lams. The primary pieces are very flamed Big Leaf Maple. The thin dark lams are Black Walnut and a middle lam of hard eastern maple of some sort.

Also shown is the neck block being stamped. "S12" indicates a 12-fret Spooner model. 'Spooner' is a summit east of Lake Tahoe above Carson City, and has two 'O's. Hence "double oh". 'C' is Carpathian Spruce and 'M' is Mahogany. This guitar is #144.

Martin 00-18G; Eastman 805; Waterloo WL-S; Furch Green OM-SR; Tahoe Guitar Co.: OM (Adi/Hog); 000-12 (Carp/FG Hog); 000-12 (Lutz/Maple); 00-12 (Carp/Sinker Hog); 00-14 (Adi/Ovangkol)

Like the castle in its corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
