Hi Neil,
We will have 3 or 4 guitars at the show. Not sure the exact number as of yet. Today was buffing day. I got 4 sanded and buffed, 2 necks and bridges glued on and Iím pooped. Itís been a busy winter.

Here are the specs:
S.E. Asian RW / Cedar Grand Recording
Wenge / Carpathian HighLander with Padauk inner sides and Hollow Back
Wenge / Carpathian HighLander with Wenge inner sides and Hollow Back
Mahogany / Torrefied Adi MiniMac
Clark Walnut / 1950 Redwood MiniMac
Mahogany / Torrefied Lutz Skeeter

Now just think Tim you could do a glamour shoot and include a Utube of someone playing it! Just trying to kick up your marketing!

Hey there, Neil.

No can do. Those two guitars are pre-sold for the Artisan Guitar show so I'll let the customer talk about them should she choose. However Tim is tinkering with a new guitar or two that are a little more plain for the Artisan show and then will possibly show up in the living room of the McJam.

I have been working on door prizes. Sometimes I make smile when I look at what goes out to the display table. You all are always so kind to tolerate the freebies I hand out.
