Spectacular looking wood!

With the style 30 project, do you really have four builds in the works with John? Dang

Yeah, I guess it's a little insane. But take it as a sign of how good Circa guitars are.

Ditto! That 28 is high on my list of to-be-kidnapped instruments

Bar frets and banjos? Keep paddling, I hear banjos! 😂

I sure hope so. Anything else would just be wrong!

No bar frets or banjos. While I do like the look of the banjo tuners, they just aren't as functional as Waverly tuners. Sorry. And though bar frets can be tolerable to play, they just aren't my preferred fret. I like modern T frets and I like them to be pretty big.

My preferences too ... plus an adjustable truss rod.

Iíve had good luck with non-adjustable truss rods. In fact, most of my guitars arenít adjustable at this point. They arenít for everyone, but they have worked well for me.

I have three guitars without adjustable truss rods (2 WWII-era Gibsons and a 1920 Larson) and have had no problems with any of them. Still, I like being able to tweak the relief and have adjustable truss rods on the modern guitars I have commissioned and on the one that I built.

The cleanness of John Slobod's work is something to behold.
