I Kinnairdly wait to seeing the finished product. This is by far the most beautiful guitar build I have ever seen.
Very nice of you to say Michael! I don't think a streaming broadcast would do very well (too many mistakes live) but I will put something up on YouTube for this one.

I love it! "I Kinnairdly wait to seeing the finished product." Hope you don't mind if I abuse that one some myself.

Not necessarily every detail, but when presented design options, he could state clearly how he wanted to move forward. He knew from the beginning that he wanted color in the instrument. As luthiers, we know how hard it is to balance an appropriate color palette for an instrument, but Dennis could see where he wanted to go. This has been a great partnership, and his vision deserves some praise.

Also, great use of Kinnairdly - a great southern word. Our second reunion t-shirts designed by our patron saint read, "Kinnairdly live without 'em!" While it's a little on the nose for a marketing campaign, we try to live up to the sentiment.

Thanks for following along.
You Texas guys deserve the high praise ... but now you're just making me blush, Ryan!

Thanks Mau! Glad you like it.

That rosette is the product of much back and forth! I really enjoyed the interaction. Steve and Ryan can be downright hilarious at times!
