In a word….”STUNNING”!
I look forward to seeing and hopefully hearing some sound clips of this beautiful instrument.

Thanks, Steve! It is so inspiring here, beautiful, rugged, natural landscape.

Could have been the Sydney Opera House!!! I like that one.

Thank you! I started doing this a few years ago, inlaying mostly on the left side.

What is your base price for custom inquires?
If you don't mind me asking, of course!
I know your site says there are no available build slots at the moment but I'm taking notes for future reference.
Hi Lane, thanks! I am very excited about the move and the new shop!

I don't mind you asking, at all! I closed my build list last spring as I was booked up to the end of 2024. I do have a waitilist for anyone wanting to be notified when the build list opens. There is always the option of going through Dream Guitars for anyone wanting a guitar sooner rather than later.
My current base price is $8500.00 US

One of the best places for sound clips and guitar demos
Look forward to hearing a sample.

Very unique rosette and I love the understated yet bold Fret board markers

Ms. White, I thought I would let you know that a few weeks past I was able to play one of your guitars, an OM, at chicago music exchange. The clerk knew I was looking for a dreadnought but said I needed to play it before I left. I did. It was outstanding. I look forward to learning more about your fine instruments.

Thanks so much for sharing that! I heard from a friend that that Koa OM was in there and I remember playing it for the first time. Very sweet little guitar!

Smile Very Classy!!!

Looks BEAUTIFUL, and I bet it will sound spectacular too.

I too am envious of your location. An island off of an island might be remote enough to hold down the riff-raff…. Hahaha

Thanks for sharing this with us all.

Be well

Paul

This is a beautiful guitar taking shape in a unique location. I had never heard of Fogo Island before, and it was so interesting that “60 Minutes” happened to do a segment on it last night. Best wishes to you in your new home. Dave

Good clip, I'm from Wyoming some what remote but Fogo is a little too remote for me.

Hey Peggy,
That appears to be the makings of a beautiful guitar. Thanks for sharing the journey.
I saw the 60 minutes piece on your new location and am happy for you- and the island. Looks and sounds like a beautiful and unique place.
All the best to you,
Tom
