Default What custom guitar commissions are you expecting delivery on in 2022?

Unbelievably, we have arrived at the end of 2021 (they all seem to fly by the older that I get). I suspect that a number of you fellow AGFers have some custom guitar commissions in the build queue with manufacturers, small shops and luthiers. Hopefully, some of you will share your builds and or completed commissioned guitars here in the AGF “Custom Shop” throughout 2022.

What guitars are you expecting & from which manufacturers/small shops & luthiers will we be seeing here in 2022?

I will update a summary list here over the next 4 to 6 weeks (through January) based on responses in this initial post.

Pagelli 40th Anniversary (OM-ish guitar, Euro spruce and maple)
LeGeyt CLM (Carpathian spruce/koa)
Circa OM-42 (Adi/Braz)
Circa 00-12, style 30 (Adi/Braz)

Tom Doerr Solace due sometime in January. Brian Applegate will be putting the final setup and touches on this instrument. Sadly, the last guitar to come out of Tom's shop. I am still heartbroken about the loss of such a talented and caring individual.

Some awesome builds coming down the pike.

I’m not certain it will make 2022, but a Buendia is on the list for me. I still need to make a visit to narrow down details.

Fanned fret Indian Hill, which I need to finalize soon. Goal is more or less to build the scale length around CGCGCD tuning. Probably going to order an Applegate cedar SJ, too.
