Default 2019 S. Kinnaird Shop Shots

We’ve had a run of four AGF member build threads in a row, but we have a little break until our next AGF related build later this year. So until then, we’re going to just post a shot every day or so to give a peek into our shop. Feel free to ask questions or give requests.



Sawing the fret slot through a Craig Lavin inlay. This is one of a pair going to AGF sponsor Miami Guitars.

Thanks for following.

That's really a beautiful fretboard...

I imagine it makes one cringe a bit to have to saw through those inlays for the frets!

Much appreciated Kenneth and Carey. I guess since I’m calling the thread “Shop Shots,” you should at least see a shop picture now and then. Here’s a look at the inlay bench. It’s actually pretty clean right now as Steve is working on cutting out some pearl.
