Tim, just out of curiosity, why do you prefer double sides?

Hi Eugenius,
Sorry for taking so many MONTHS to reply to your question but I just saw it ;( I have been using Double Sides since studying with Ervin Somogyi a few years ago. It is not my idea and I kind of borrowed it from him which I am sure he kinda borrowed it from someone else too DS's are extremely rigid providing superior crack resistance and structural support for the top and back vibrating plates. Think of the sides being similar to the way a drum is construted of a super stiff rim supporting thin and flexible top and bottom heads. Same principle applies to guitars IMO. It is definately more work and more cost in the process but its worth it (IMO) or I wouldn't be doing it. Here is some more information if you would care to read it - http://mcknightguitars.com/process.html

It was a joke! David knew I'd never go that route, but I wasn't alone in trying to smack the guitar with a lil bit o' ugly. Tim was in on that one, too.

Whoa... that wasn't nice of me to say. Maybe teh pick guard is not ugly, but it's definitely not meant for THIS guitar.

David's guitar was created from the old 1700 livery station walnut. It has such a western wagon wheel look to it. I love this guitar with the old western theme. It holds charm!

Real cowboys of olden days would have been well pleased with David's choices.

Actually, that pickguard IS ugly, regardless of the guitar.

The guitar in question is absolutely beautiful.

The scary part is, it actually looks like it blends rather well in that pic.

Come see this guitar at Healdsburg next weekend!

First, we had layoffs.

Now we're working like crazy with a sales package of some properties I work. (I guess the 10 billion dollar price tag is just too much for us to handle ).

Then, they decided to put "Budget Week" right during my planned trip. There's very hard deadlines that have to be met during Budget, but somehow I think I'll manage.

Then, they decided that with all this going on, they'd MOVE us (up three floors) this weekend. That's killed a day or two, and means my work PC won't even be available for me to work with this weekend (though I don't think I'll need it to get done on time).

I'm just hoping that my PC still works on Monday . . any problem with that could spell a big problem for me.
