Louie, you are right! Unfortunately, Josh's guitar has been put on a back burner while Gage was completing 2 guitars on his bench. Hoping that he gets right back to them, but meanwhile, here are some photos of the culprits. Gorgeous isn't it - I just love the rosette and his beveled bridge... ain't nothing else like them!

So our boy Marcus is out causing trouble at the Woodstock show and I figured I’d update this. While this pic isn’t all that exciting to look at, it absolutely made my day! THE BOX IS CLOSED!IMG_1744.jpg

Gage is finally back on track after the temporary hiatus on Josh's guitar. I don't think Josh has seen these photos yet. I think they look alright

Knowing Josh's playing style and tonal preference, combined with Gage's sound and craftsmanship, I truly cannot imagine a guitar more perfect for the job. You are going to be so happy Josh, I guarantee it.

I donít really know what to say! Gage has a standard that is incredibly high and Iím SOOOO glad to have gotten in on the ground floor! I know his prices will skyrocket. Every picture I see blows my mind.

Getting updates from Gage brings so much joy to me (and I'm guessing Josh Isaacs as well). I totally forgot that this was getting a bevel, things just got even more exciting!!

So this is where things get a little crazy! Gage's workmanship is just topnotch. Check out the transformation of Josh's guitar as it receives its bevel!











Check. Out. That. Purfling.

I had actually seen these before Marcus posted them...and Iíve looked at them every day since. You can clearly see the Greenfield lineage in Gageís work but you can also see everything Gage does to make it uniquely a Halland. His work is as intricate and as clean as Iíve ever seen...itís remarkable.
His work on this bevel is stunning. The purfling lines at the base and top of the bevel are quickly becoming some of my favorite details in any guitar Iíve seen before. My goodness is he a talent in the industry!

This build is reaching the final stages! Materials for the neck, finger board and head plates all laid out:



Here is the neck fit onto the body. Looks pretty tight to me!



Really excited to hear Josh's thoughts on playing his very first Halland when it is completed

A long overdue update. Happy 2019 all! I hope that your new year shall be filled with music and guitars

Here are a few photos - the neck has been fitted and it should be off to finish by none other than Vancouver Guitar Finishing. Everything about this guitar is just so clean... I can't wait for Josh to finally play this!!
