I, too, was too impatient at first for a custom but now I savor the process ... The longer the more enjoyment! And you will enjoy a guitar from The Tree!

I initially wanted to commission two "modest cousins" but finally settled for a fully decked out guitar with Paua all over the place. If I'm lucky, I'll grab its cousin next year.

Next on my list is a Petros. The man didn't threaten to retire so I figured he could wait another year or two...

I can’t wait to see some pictures! I love the Mahogany/Cedar combo and using The Tree will make it even better!

Congrats!

Abalone back center strip
Abalone end wedge borders
Headstock paua perimeter
Peghead back mahogany veneer with WBW
Paua in-filled "O" on headstock
Fingerboard paua perimeter
42 style fingerboard extension
Full vine inlay on fingerboard
Wide paua/BRW rosette
Thicker neck
Satin gold tuners with ebony buttons
No strap button
No pick up
No pick guard

Ah! Didn't realize you had already established this thread earlier in the year. Just found it. Wow, that's some amazing figure on that mahogany, as was expected. Looking forward to watching this develop.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Beautiful Olsons all decked out with bling
These are a few of my favorite things


I think that's how the song goes
