Mark and Steve, we really appreciate that you stopped by. Thanks for the kind words!

Paul, Mathis, thank you too guys! I hope the best is yet to come.

Proud to have it in the home next weekend. Here is to 200 more!

Not long now, guys. Just a couple more days, and a coupl’a stops at Buccees and we’re there. Thanks for the kind words.

P.S.—Lonzo, you know that YOU get the special headstock. It’s twice as nice!

That is really nice Ryan and Bro. The Bubinga binding and rosette worked very well. Just a great choice of embellishments

Thanks, guys, for the kind words. I’m glad the curly Bubinga has been so well received. It was a challenge to work it, more so than any other species we have used.

I too am smitten over the bubinga bindings. It works so well with everything else. Congratulations on #200. I'm looking forward to seeing it in person, and the both of you too!

This has to be one of the prettiest guitars I've ever seen, guys! Great build and I'm sure it sounds fantastic.

Good. Lord.

That is a beautiful instrument gents. Well done! It's elegant, yet tasteful, and I can only imagine how lovely it will sound. Here's to the next 200!

Thanks everyone for the very kind words. We rushed out a video before BIG in case she doesn't come home with us. We hope you enjoy it!

Many thanks, Treenewt, for the kind word and to toasting the fact I can’t retire. At the rate I’m working, the next 200 should be wrapped up when I’m nearing 90. But lutherie keeps one young, so who knows?
