That's what Jim told me when I was ordering but it is always pretty difficult to tell for an amateur who orders a guitar.

I would love to have just one Olson. Three??? Wow! Those photos look like they will be really beautiful, like most Olsons.

Cool!

From what I can tell, Jim builds a very stable great sounding guitar. But what do I know.

Because he can only enjoy a guitar by having other people look at them???

Does that seem creepy to anyone else?

Possibly; yet sometimes people post build threads to encourage others to consider using a builder whom the original poster respects. Sometimes they are just pleased and wish to share an incredible experience.

Not really. The whole idea of this subsection is to show other people about a build (and on occasion, look at it yourself)

There are lots of different characters members of the forum, and it should stay that way. I would never get excited like others do.

Yea, a little ... but I still like to look (as my signature suggests).

No but it sure seems that jealousy creeps in very quick. I can certainly appreciate the beauty and quality of most any hand builders work. Be appreciative of what you have and be happy for others that have nice things.

This is the first section of the forum I click on when I do my daily visit. I love to see what builds other people have on going. I think it's great that this person has the means to do these builds, and I enjoy watching the builds in progress. Keep bringing it on!
