Fred, I hope you are doing well
Hi Bill I am doing OK and hunkered down avoiding excess interactions with the world and spending way more time in my basement shop. Hope all is well with yourself and the Buffalo guitar community.

Fred

Since Fred had a bad luck and was involved in a car accident he had to go through a shoulder surgery, and of course the build had to wait.

Fred’s shoulder is healing well and gaining some strenght. Today, I received this message from Fred:

« Shoulder good enough for a session on the buffer. 1 more with the extra fine wax then bridge glue to top »

Even better... got some pics 😁

Was happy to see Fred’s work on my parlor has hit the last stages of the build.

Now I can’t wait to receive Fred’s comment on the guitar’s first acoustic test. Shouldn’t be too long now...Strings are on ! BTW Fred, what strings have you put on the guitar ?

Looking great. I had a chance to play a couple of Fred's guitars when he attended a luthier's show in Red Wing, MN.

It’s been a while...But was worth it ! Pandemic mood makes it difficult to try the trip to Windsor from here. I just can’t wait to receive it !
