Jim's tooling and jigs are all great to look at, too. And to think he designed them himself.

Great pics! Lookin real nice.

I am off this coming week... headed to Minnesota to go to an ice hockey sleepaway camp (they actually have that for adults). I will make an afternoon trip to head to Circle Pines Minnesota to make a visit with Jim Olson. I will take some extra pictures.

Hey Keith - enjoy the visit to Jim's place - If you have the opportunity would you take a few pictures of the build I have going as well? And what's the trick to getting so many shots from Jim? Is it just a function of you being a repeat customer? Btw love how your dread is shaping up...

For those who like to color between the lines and stick to the straight and narrow, I suppose!

Keith, that guitar body Jim Olson is building for you is looking quite spectacular. Best wishes.

I visited Jim at his shop and had an exceptional visit. Jim's time is so precious and I was lucky to catch him on a slow day when he was taking it easy and we talked of life, guitars, and looked over the latest batch of guitars. What an amazing experience.

Looked over some amazing sets of Brazilian for a build for a friend and possibly a build for me. Jim honestly cares so much about what he does, all of us who have Olsons should really reflect on how fortunate we all are to have such an amazing instrument.
