I notice at least three luthiers, including myself, plan to bring small guitars to B.I.G. That will make for very interesting observing!

I have finished the 2 Single 0's I plan to bring. I consider them both successful, yet they could hardly be more different, which was my plan. I put a bunch of pictures in my nearby 2018 (chapter 3) thread, and I offer a couple of each guitar for you here as well:

Default B.I.G. 2019!!! Program updates announcements!!!!

Good morning Tom...

Here is another guitar that Iím working on for B.I.G.
Itís my Solis model (auditorium/0000-size with a 16Ē lower bout). It has Master-grade Sitka over Cocobolo, with flamed Pyinma purflings, Ebony bindings and rust veneer lines. The rosette is Pyinma burl with flamed Pyinma purfling.

The one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck is almost finished, and Iíve designed and cut out this seahorse (pictured with my headstock logo) to inlay at the 12th fret...

Hey Tom, is Jason Kostal still on board for your shindig? He doesn't seem to post on AGF anymore so there's no teasers from him like those Steve, Bruce and Joel are posting. Not that anything hinges on this - I'm just curious. Heck, I would want to come even if it were an exclusively Sexauer show - or any one of the other guys. Can hardly wait!

Yes for sure, he is still on board. He and Michael Watts are going to do a road trip from Arizona haha I would like to be a fly on the wall in that car but then again maybe not, lol, road trip food and all!!! He is busy working on a guitar trying to get it ready to bring to the event that we all want to see. I know he's bringing at least one if not a couple more as well. So yes he is going to be there. I think he's not posting because he has been working from what I have been told 14 to 16 hours a day trying to get a particular guitar finished.

Everything is coming together just as I had hoped. This is supposed to be a personable small event where really just a bunch of friends get together and have a weekend of nothing but guitars, music, food, and friendship. So much more personal than the Big Show's, you can see what guitars will be there as well as the makers. I think from what has been displayed so far I could not be happier. And just wait it's gets better as we haven't even seen anything from three of the guys yet!!! And I would be remiss if not to mention the concerts from Bruce , Paul and Cindy, Frog and Toad, and Michael Watts. Oh yes, myself with my stepdaughter and significant other will be the leadoff band regaling you with three songs as well. Now if that doesn't make you sign up I don't know what will LOL.

Sorry about the silence. I'm out this attempt. I have a job interview and might be upgrading.

Wow. Talk about a plan coming together! I hope the "leadoff band" has prepared a fourth song as I envision shouts of 'encore!'. This is fantastic and I hope there will be many pictures to follow! How to go, Tom!

Haha, well that would make my daughter's year for sure if that were to happen, I was simply hoping no one throws acorns at us.

For sure, they can come. I have been saving about 5 spots for folks in the neighborhood anyway and I actually had a a husband and wife that had to cancel yesterday as other plans came up, so that would work out great to replace them with your friends!

I'm really looking forward to this, if only to see what color pants Michael Watts wears.

Speaking of the indelicate, I've an indelicate question. I'll be doing my Kalamazoo Gals thing, which will include a presentation of still photos and videos of the Gals (including clips from folks playing the went-to-WWII guitar - Rosanne Cash will play it in a couple of weeks). And, if folks wish, I'll ship some books. No pressure. No need to buy one. But, well, I only want to ship as many as folks want. Discount price of $20, signed. These things make great doorstops, trivets, and kindling.

Anyway, PM me if you want me to bring a book.
