Awesome! I'll be there in a splash!

Just FYI, 'build' images open up quickly for me -- never more than a second or two, at most, and usually all but immediately.

Thanks for the feedback folks. These final pics were taken with a different camera. Do you notice any difference in the speed of which they load?

Not sure about the camera, but it sure did make the guitar look great!

Thanks Dave. I not an expert photographer so I really don’t know what I’m doing nor the difference in the cameras. All the other pictures were taken with a point and shoot Cannon Powershot pocket digital camera. These final pics were taken with a larger Cannon DSLR so I wonder if they save the images in a different format? Regardless, I am glad you are able to finally see these pictures.

Hey thanks Tom. I’ve got a few more pics to post but I wanted to find out if these images are loading any different or perhaps even faster? Thanks again for your feedback.

I get butterflies and I smile as I gaze at this guitar. The woods, the quirky uniqueness and the finish silently scream, "Look at me."

You did good, Tim. You did real good.

I watched you work. I know the tremendous time it took but for me, by gum, this one was a fun piece from start to finish.

I like my job.

That is a really pretty guitar and as Mary says, quite unique..artistically done with great craftsmanship.

Hey thanks for the kind words John. This has been a fun project for us. The guitar was shipped a couple days ago and is safely in the hands of its new caretaker. Here are a couple final shots:









Its fun trying to imagine what others see in this photo. I see a soldier, with his helmet on and wearing a poncho, perhaps in the rain? What do you see in the back's intense grain figuring?
