It has- May and December are tough times for me to get too much guitar work done. My day job has me scrambling with school finals. I also took a little time off to reset and am now back to a normal schedule which gets me back in the shop regularly.

I have the top braced and back braces gluing now. Voicing will begin today-

(pics below)

I am also working on a few other things. A decent size run of Fossil Walrus Ivory pins, in 2 styles. Nice stuff too- excellent textures in the inner core of almost every one of these pins.


And I have been working on a newly redesigned CL (14+ lower bout) to have at my table for sale at Woodstock this year. It is coming along slowly, I'm taking my time with it which feels nice. Rosette is done! Another style I have been wanting to make for a long time. Resin in birdseye maple-

That is beautiful looking. Feel like Burton has knocked it out of the park aesthetically.

I agree. If Burton wants to take this on a victory loop then I'd be ok with it.
