Default Fay Guitars -- Website Updated

I've made a lot of changes recently and have been wanting to update my site for awhile now. I spent the weekend overhauling my site with information on some of my most recent designs (new bevel, headstock overlays, etc.). The update went live a few hours ago. And here are some photos of Sinker Redwood / Walnut guitar I just sent to a customer. It was a simple guitar but I thought the aesthetics were particularly nice -- Sinker Redwood can be astoundingly beautiful.

Simon,

The website is nicely done. Clean, easy to navigate, with good information and photographs.

I really like the shape of your Model One...just elegant and beautiful.

Thanks for sharing.

Rob

Thanks for the compliments on my site.

And Tom, speaking of headstocks, your Healdsburg guitar was just brilliant!!!

+2 ... Simon is another luthier who manages to be traditional yet unique, and whose work I have appreciated ever since being grateful custodian to one of his prototypes. Great job on the new website, Simon!

That headstock is amazing. One of the very finest I've ever seen.

Simon--I'll echo the sentiments of all here. The website is very clean and modern and easy to navigate. And your guitars are stunning--really beautiful detailing and design. Hope to be able to play one of your someday soon...
