Beautiful work, as usual Jimmy. Will you sunburst these?

Steve

Default Ken Franklin Guitars

I'm thinking of bringing this double cutaway in Adirondack and striped ebony.

Steve,

Both will be bursts, not sure what type yet. I'm toying with the idea of a late 20's style - hand rubbed on the 00. I love the look of the old Gibson bursts, quite a different look from the sprayed version. The mandolin is built along the lines of a violin, so I'll probably do something a little different on that one also. Any other Texas builders coming that you know of?

OH YEAH! Ken, that is just stunning.
The rosette is riding the perfect line between modernist and classic.

Hope to see it there!
Cheers,
Martin

Thanks everyone. It's a pretty good bet that I'll bring it, unless of course I sell it first.
