Nice autumn light there. I like the shot looking down the center line of the neck. Nice work!

I can attest to this, Dion's guitars are definitely the loudest boxes I have ever come across. For players with little to no nails and a very gentle touch, you'll hear a guitar like you've never heard before in your hands!

"In the white" is a true description of this box!
Clean, clean work--congrats!

Thanks Steve! In the white indeed. The finish shouldnít take it too off white as itís polyester.

Well, Iíve had a weeks delay due to my guitar being lost in shipping on the way back from the finishers. Itíll be in my possession tomorrow, making for a busy week wrapping it up in time for NAMM.

While I wait Iím getting everything I can ready. Hereís a photo of the bridge receiving its first coat of finish.

NAMM was a great success! Many contacts and lifelong relationships made. Here are a few good photos of the euro maple/Italian spruce Model No.04.

Wow, that’s a simple yet beautiful theme on that guitar Dion. As odd as it may sound, I really like the satin black neck and it’s contrast to the high gloss on everything else. What finish did you use on the black neck?

Hi Dion,
Beautiful guitar, looks even better up close & in person,
It was a pleasure to meet and talk with you at NAMM,
too many people to remember I'm sure, but we met Saturday,
I'm the recently retired aerospace machine shop owner

Looking forward to seeing more of your guitar builds here

All The Best

Nort

As an aesthetic this is really up there near the top for me in all the builds I have seen at AGF.

Simple and clean but bold too..
