Thanks. And yes absolutely, he is very professional, honest and wants every single guitar to be perfect for his clients.

Top class builder !

Hahaha, I've asked that as well already, but it's not perfectly cleaned up yet, so no picture at the moment.

I've asked small bevels just for ergonomic purpose. I have both arm and ribs bevels. The ribs Bevel is a first for Joel.

Stay tuned !

Hi guys,

Update : The guitar is ready for finish and i've got a bunch of pictures to share with you. Very eye candy !!

Now starts the long wait. Joel's finisher does an amazing job but it can take him quite a long time (up to 8 weeks in some cases depending on his schedule). Then once Joel gets the guitar back he needs another month to finish it. That means another 3 months of wait.

I'm very pleased with the result so far !

Enjoy !!




























Joel is so thoughtful that he adds a "blade" at the back of his headstock joint. This way it becomes a weapon in case someone would want to steal this guitar from me.

I never tire of seeing fine workmanship and attention to detail...and these photos show that this guitar looks like an excellent example of that... just see how clean the lines are...
