Default Dion Guitars NAMM offering

With a couple of guitars out the door for finish, itís time to start a new one. Iíll be showing this guitar at NAMM as part of The Boutique Guitar Showcase.

This will be a Model No.04 in Italian spruce over European Birdseye maple.

Iím really thrilled with this spruce I got from Bachman tone woods. This will be the third guitar Iíve built with it, theyíve provided me with perfect wood!

Very clean and sweet. I love that you post different things on Facebook - your little quick-time videos over there are great fun.

I glued the fingerboard on today. The neck will get carved over the next couple days, final sand over the weekend and send this one off for finish.
