Whatever you call it, that Plum Jaguar Pudding Mahogany popped in an unexpected good way! What a gorgeous guitar this will be.

Thanks Bill! I was so happy with how yours turned out and there's no better feeling than knowing you love it as well!

Thanks -- I'm antsy to finish up my current projects so I can hear this one come to life!

I'll be hopping on a plane with this guitar tomorrow and heading out west for the La Conner Guitar Festival this weekend so it's about time I posted some final pics of the build!





























I'm so pleased with how this one came out and can't wait for some of you to have a look and hopefully give it a whirl at the show!

You might be getting on the plane with it flying out, but I think you will have more free overhead space on your way back!!!!

Amazing craftsmanship, a work if art. I agree it will have a lot of interest. How could it not!

Thanks so much everyone! It was an incredibly fun weekend in La Conner and this one won't be making the trip back to Montreal with me!
