Yeah, that's mine on the left. This ad is posted in the May issue of Premier Guitar Magazine. I am pretty stoked.

Getting The Macassar Done

First, a note of safety: At Ziegenfuss guitars, we take safety very seriously - even the new assistant came to work on her first day fully decked out in the proper safety attire.

Then, you can see some pictures of the last of the Montreal offerings - the Macassar ebony doublecut 6 string. I am trying something new with the binding, where I used curly aspen as a solid laminate layer under the macassar. Then during the carve, I will come down precisely to the aspen to make it look like a full binding.

It has been a little while. I have been busy recently, traveling most weekends - and now that I have an 8 mo. old in the house, running machines past 8 PM has been unnacceptable, laving me exactly 1 hour each night to get anything done - if I can spend all my free time guitar building. Regardless, We'll get these worked out. Below you will see a couple pictures of the maccassar ebony doublecut 6 str. that is slated for the Montreal Guitar show - provided I can get it done. As well you will see a couple pictures of Jung's doublecut bass, which will be sweet. I am hoping he likes the two tone coco for his fretboard. I think it really catches his vision.
