Tom, that's gorgeous! And your smile says so much. Looking forward to hearing your "real" first impressions, figuring you'll try to find a good amount of time over the weekend to play. Of course, it'll also be fun to hear about the ongoing changes as the guitar opens up. Most importantly, play in great health and happiness!!

This was a fun guitar! There were several elements to it that pushed our design habits, but that was a good thing. It's what makes our job so great when we get to work in concert with a client to make something unique - like a friendship. Thanks again Tom for putting even more than your trust with us. We wish many long years of enjoyment and sweet sounding music.

And don't be a stranger once you get to the promised land. You're part of the family now.

Congrats, Tom--glad to hear that it was simply work and not a medical emergency that had us all on pins and needles! Have fun and enjoy the heck out of your beautiful, new guitar!

There's a big "DO NOT DISTURB" sign on Tom's front door today. Something about a honeymoon.

Yes indeed, feel like I have known her for a long time, and yet we just met...match made in heaven I guess.

Yeah, I was pretty happy with it. Thanks, I will write more on the sound, but I can tell you, it is better tonight than last night and it was pretty danged good last night. Steve said it would need 24 hours of tension in the strings to come back to being a guitar and son of a gun, I do notice that tonight, more volume, more sustain, more overtones....I am really shocked by what 24 hours did to her.

Thank you, and thank you for following along. I will shamelessly say, that I think this has been a great build thread mainly because of the detail photos Steve and Ryan sent, but even more so, the great group of people like yourself that have been following along and posting such great and often funny comments. It has been real fun for sure. I will miss having the build go on, but if I keep working as much as I have been this week, hopefully I can do another build in the future!!!

Thank you Ryan, and when we all get to the promise land, we will be sure to plan a trip to the oldest town in Texas for sure!!!

Yes, no medical emergency, but I feel sorry for those that had to put up with me at work because I am sure I was not the easiest to get along with cuz all I wanted to do was get done and get home!!!! Thanks for being such a loyal follower on the thread and enjoy you new creation as well!!!!!

Thanks Steve! Let's just say Kathy is a little jealous right now of this new found girl in my life....

Default Who's that girl!?

Yeah, who IS that girl on your FaceBook page...assuming it's your daughter!

And shhhh....don't tell the whole world about Ryan and Steve's work. We wanna keep their guitars accessible and modestly priced...as soon as the word gets out, they'll like double their prices!

Congrats on the guitar - now to schedule the surgical removal of that smile from your face!

Haha, if you are referring to that beautiful young lady next to me in my profile picture, that would be the much mentioned Kathy. When you are as handsome and charming as I am, that is the beauty to which life rewards you, I know not fair, but hey what can I say....

Now as to Steve and Ryan, I get where your coming from for sure, and their hard work to produce a world class guitar that will rival any out there, yes, I promise not to mention that....

Now I need to get back to smiling. Thanks!!!

Well we got Tom's beauty got out just a little too quick to make this clip, but the local news stopped by yesterday, and I thought you would like to see it. Close observers will see the F1 build as the top that Steve's holding with the body on the table, and the Ziricote SJ that we work on is for fellow AGFer Dave White.

Kinnaird Guitars on the local news

Thanks
