Mr. Tim, will mine be a 2021 guitar and what approximate serial # will you be up to at that time?

Hi there Peteybabes,

Our current backlog is running about 2 years from receipt of deposit until delivery. I certainly like the name and challenge but I'll wait for you to unveil it at the start of your build

Our serial numbers are a LOT higher than your #97 now and will be much higher by the time your next build comes to fruition.

I agree. The colors really did coordinate well, especially under a finish.

The guitar is now in the hands of the new owner and he has been playing it in church. Unfortunately he only has access to recording from his iPhone which probably isn't the best representation of what the guitar actually sounds like.

Forgive me, Tim and Mary, for being so late to the party.
I love your low tech photo booth, and those pics that came out are amazing!
As for the guitar, it has a pleasing 1970's hand-built vibe, to my eye, which I'm really pleased to see again. (I miss those days.)
Great work, guys!

Steve
