I try not to let that happen. You see how I say I am building three in a series? I try to stay away from "batches". It may save time to make three necks at once or 18 custom tuner buttons at a time but, to me, that becomes mind numbing production work and I loose track of each individual guitar I am building. So much of the completed design of each guitar comes while in the process of building it. The individual guitar becomes a participant in it's development, if you will, and I need to give it individual attention to hear what it's telling me. I can, however, post some side by side photos when they are all done.

The rosette has spalted Tamarind which looks like spalted maple but, I find it stays brighter under finish than maple .

Hi Matthew,

I'd be happy to answer any questions you may have about my impressions of the Cello geared tuning pegs but, I am not going to be at the Memphis show so you might PM your questions to me.
