Default Stephen Kinnaird 2020 (New video added page 3)

Plenty of fun things are going to be coming out of our shop this year, and we thought we would share a couple of them with you.

We will be attending the 2nd BIG show in a couple of weeks, but before we could finish the two guitars we are taking to that event, we needed to get this custom order out the door. It is a Bearclaw Sitka/Madagascar Rosewood 000. It has a lot of fun inlay that is based upon two previous guitars that we had done: one for cigarfan and one for Christie Cook - both of which have been featured here on the AGF.

We hope you enjoy this and our future contributions to this thread.



















Thanks for looking!

Beautiful Ryan! Yes, that rosette brings back Dennis's guitar for sure. That bridge is a lot different for you also isn't it? Love the little embellishment of the "K" also.

See you guys in 2 weeks!!! This guitar sounds great as always!

Thank you brother. I wish we could bring this guitar to BIG, but it has to go on to its new home.

Beautiful guitar, Ryan. The bridge seems to be just the right complement. Where did you find that picker?!

Thanks Ken. Like one of our customers somewhere said, “Because it's custom made for any mother's son to be a guitar picker” in our neck of the woods. I found this picker on the side of the road and thought he’d be good enough. Thanks about the bridge. It’s close to one we did about two years back and thought it would be nice here.

Dennis, looking forward to a bear hug in just over two weeks!

Another one of JS's:

"Remember that guitar in a museum in Tennessee
And the nameplate on the glass brought back twenty melodies
And the scratches on the face
Told of all the times he fell
Singin' every story he could tell
And oh the stories it could tell
And I bet you it still rings like a bell..."

That is a great sounding OM. I was most impressed by the loud chords at the end. There's a lot of power under the hood there, even though the finger picking sounds sweet.

That is the truth! Steve and Ryan build AMAZING sounding guitars (in my opinion).

Don't you admire the way Ryan can drop a name without dropping the name? Remarkable!

That's encouraging. I was sure someone would take me to task for attempting to play "The Great Gate of Kiev" on six strings.

Here’s our most recent 00 that will be attending the BIG(er) show next week. It’s Lutz Spruce & Marbled Claro Walnut. We purchased this wood illicitly at an In ‘n’ Out Burger outside the Healdsburg Guitar Show (but don’t tell anyone). Hope you enjoy. The video has to be edited but will follow shortly.




















Thanks for looking!
