Keith...Bruce...I had no idea you actually did that. That is incredible!

It is amazing looking. I am amazed you took the time to do that and really appreciate it.
You're welcome Keith. I hope it gives you some idea of how it may look, although I am sure it will be much, much better when you see the real thing. Congrats again and I am sure it will be well worth the wait!

He may be taking a break after his last group. Usually when he gets into a group of guitars it really consumes him and works very hard on them. I'm sure he'll update you when things get moving...he's really good about that.

Than IS exciting...such spectacular figure on that wood! Keep posting updates, I enjoy seeing such beautiful guitars coming together. I'm LOVING my new Olson SJ...it's everything I hoped it would be and more. I'm sure you will feel the same way once you get yours. Congrats!

He is an incredible talent overburdened with a high class problem of everyone wanting a slice of his time. If you have an Olson in production, be happy about it and be happy for anyone who is getting one as well instead of obsessing over such details and causing anyone to get upset for any reason.
Hi CPA. You were specific in the serial number 1301 in your post. Why is that so important to the other person?

He does his guitars in batches...and so that a batch of guitars will be numbered say 1301-1315...well perhaps someone who thought they may have ordered before were upset that I was 1301 and they must have sent Jim an email complaining...he was upset about the whole hassle...he is on his way to end taking custom orders, all this kind of stuff does is push him closer to doing that I suspect...Then he will just build what he wants and put them up for sale.

Who called complaining about not getting a serial number?

That's TOTALLY lame. For a one person operation like Jim's that's the last thing he needs.

That was EXACTLY what Jim said.

Anyway, such is life. My Olson is rolling and that is what matters today.

Am I the only one that can appreciate the anatomical correctness of this guitar?
