General work

Just getting stuff done.  I have a mini factory going....about 7 acoustics and a handful of basses.

Nearly There!

Well,  here is another stunning coco small jumbo.  This guitar is headed to a friend in Ohio, and I believe he will be very pleased with it.  As mentioned, the cocobolo is particularly stunning - and it is counterposed with a flamed mahogany neck.  The top is Carpathian spruce, adorned with 0.06" red heart abalone face purfling.

New koa 5 string

Well, I finished rough carving of this beauty today.  Can't wait to get it under finish!

Well, I made a solid effort today to finish up this neck.  Finished fretting and made the bridge.  Now I just have to do final sanding and off to finish.

Because I will join the neck after finish, I have elected to wait until I join the neck to level the frets.

Corey's Vintage GA

This guy was just shipped across the Pacific to a friend in Victoria, AU.  Fundamentally low presence in this guitar, with an incredibly unique aesthetic.
