Thanks! After two years exhibiting at La Conner I decided not go this year. Then, after the show filled up I began to regret my decision so I asked to be put on the wait list. Fingers crossed! If I end up going Iíll be bringing this guitar, itíll be at the Vancouver show for sure.

Beautifully simplistic/minimalist design. I like the lines of your design.

Started a few other guitars this week, and I was pruning in the orchard so there hasnít been much progress on this one. I did manage to make a bridge and get the fingerboard mostly prepped.

Interesting jig. Is that for helping with neck angle or just for bridge placement?

I rely so heavily on the sunshine in my shop for good photos and today it wasnít out. Either way, the body is sanded and off for gloss. The neck will stay with me for a satin finish.

Looking absolutely great. After playing the number 3 that is currently for sale here in our classifieds (and local), I just can't imagine that one of your guitars can be for sale for any length of time or what the expected differences are between #3's and #4's. Maybe an east coast show where we can try out a small variety one day.

Thanks Jeff! No east coast shows this year for me, maybe next year. Perhaps youíll get a chance to play the No.04 Iím building for your friend, itís a shame heís got to sell his No.03, Iíd have loved to hear your opinion on the differences between the two.
