I had a great time in Woodstock. What a fantastic show full of amazing guitars and luthiers.

When I got home from the show, I had a package waiting for me from Craig Lavin. He did an amazing job on the inlay!

So after playing catch up for a week or two, I got the neck sprayed and buffed.



Now comes the "fun" part- the remaining hundred + tiny steps to get these parts put together into a guitar.

Chris it was great to finally meet you and your guitars in person. Thanks so much for your time with me...

That is one amazing inlay, looks so photo-realistic.

Really pretty stuff. Boy I sure am glad Mr. Taylor was able to break the cycle of "group think psychology" that somehow was under the impression the "we" only wanted or would like "pure black" ebony.

We now see more and more black and white Ebony available which great because things won't be going to waste , but beyond that it's obviously killer looking as seen with your guitar.

Great job

This is so amazing. I probably will never be able to afford a guitar like this, but I take great pleasure in knowing that people are putting such beauty together somewhere. Thanks for sharing!!

I dunno, while stunningly beautiful, there's something fishy about this guitar and I can't quite place my finger on it, perhaps if I played it sometime I could,lol...great job!
