Default Butterscotch Blackguard t90 (p90 content)

Just finished and delivered the last guitar of my building season, a chambered Alder body, conversion scale t90 model, hitting the scale right at 7lbs. Jared is one heck of a picker, into jazz. There's a youtube video of him demo-ing a slide at 12 yrs old. I'm guessing he's around 20 now, a trauma unit nurse at Emory in the transplant dept.

Stephen, another beautiful build! When you mention it's the end of your building season do you mean you take the summer (or longer) off from building?

I just checked out your site again (http://www.talkovichguitars.com/). Great pics of players playing your Talkovich guitars!

Thanks Dru. I don't build in the summer and early fall. I guess I'm continuing a family tradition. Dad wasn't wealthy but later in life he took summers off from his Raymond James gig in FL (worked at the very first RJ office) and spent summers back home in MN at a cabin we now own.

Forgive the upstairs bedroom window view.

Stephen, yep, count me in for the summers off with that backyard!

When you mentioned "conversion scale" are you talking about a 24 3/4" scale length? I've been wanting to get one of those necks for my Strats for years.

That's right. 24.75. I do maybe half of my guitars short scale. I use the conversion necks on my personal guitars as well. There are so many advantages.
