Default Steve Denvir #24

I just got an email from Steve that he is starting. It will be a 000 with a cut-away and a sound port. Lutz top with east indian rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard, bridge and bindings. I'm really excited. This is going to be a great adventure.

Pictures coming when I get them.

Is this your first custom? It's a lot of fun, especially if you have a really good rapport with the builder. Enjoy the process!

Yes, this will be my first custom. I never thought I could get a custom, but Steve makes it easier and he's the nicest guy you could ever meet. It's a pleasure to deal with him. I'm sure the other custom builders are also but I have faith that I will give me something I can't get in the store.

Today we are discussing the rosette. I'm the unblingiest guy around so it will be simple, made of rosewood. This is fun!

Steve sent me this picture of the soundboard with rosewood rosette. First custom guitar for me.

This is very exciting!

Default Steve Denvir #24, OMG it's almost ready!



I can't believe it's almost ready. Almost time to gas up the truck and go to pick it up in Canada!
