Kramer Prairie Grass - German spruce/Mahogany with his Brazilian Rosewood trim package (Fret board, bridge, head stock face/back plate and binding.) 14 fretter with a 25"scale and a sound port. I ordered it this past February and I was initially due to get it in June 2019 but Sparky was able to move up the timeline. He started it in mid-November and I should be able to pick it up in March or April of 2019. Yay!!!

Default Kraus OM

Add me to the list. I will be commissioning Bill Kraus to build me a custom OM; Bear Claw spruce over Rosewood. This will be my first foray into the custom shop realm - I will share a journal of the project. #Exciited!

The list for 2019 is already >50 commissions....

I hope that some of you will share the construction of these guitars here in the AGF Custom Shop next year...

What type of guitar(s) are you expecting and from which luthier(s) will we be seeing here in 2019?

I will added a summary list that I will update from time (for the next few weeks) to time based on responses in this initial post.

My second Kwak - one of these days. The builder is horribly non-committal!

(Fyi, Iím referring to me. Iíd love to be able to afford to pay someone else - such as Tim McKnight - to build a custom for me but there are parts of the process that I love - and others that I hate.)

A Hatcher for me - Pina model with cutaway- probably Redwood (could be cedar - still noodling) over Cocobolo.

This will be my 3rd year on this list, but I think this year will be the year!

I am expecting a Bashkin OM in Zircote and Carpathian sometime in 2019. The reason for the hold is because we have been waiting on Jimmi Wingert to design and make an inlay on the headstock. She hasn't been creating or working due to her new baby and I'm not sure if she'll get back into it this year. I recently spoke to Kathy Wingert about it, and she's not sure either!

If Jimmi isn't available, Michael and I have discussed moving forward regardless and perhaps incorporating his own beautiful inlays.

Yes, I am a patient man!!
