Default Matt Kinnaird's #4

About one year in the making but it was worth the wait.
Curly black walnut (harder than claro) body and neck.
Cedar top, I supervised the voicing and it does sound very good.
zircote binding.
Finish and burst by Tony
Moustache bridge
jezcar frets (is that spelled right)
Matt worked in my shop and I did the QC on the build.

Congratulations Matt!

I wish I was lucky enough to have John looking over my shoulder on my first builds. I especially like that Walnut neck.
I'm a big fan of Black Walnut. I consider it the Brazilian Rosewood of Walnuts.

Very cool. Chip off the old block.

I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache!

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the praise! You're right, I am very lucky! Most of you guys on here I'm sure, had to figure this out from scratch. Which I can now say would have been a trail on sanity and an exercise in patience.

Yes, my dad is great to work with. We have similar working habits I believe. Low frustration levels and a calm and chill atmosphere!

That's why I chose that one. I'm living vicariously through that bridge. I too wish I could sport that same mustache! I tried at one point but my wife persuaded me to change.

Thanks, Jayne,

There's a part of me that would be happy if the guitar got to stay with me. I love it!
