Well, as expected, there has been a ton of guitar work coming through this month. I have delivered 4 guitars this month, with another one shortly coming. Then, I have gotten a good deal done in general. In sequence below, you can see 1. vacuum pressing a flamed koa drop top to an aspen core 2. gluing steve's coco back to his sides 3. finishing the kerfed lining installation on Corey's GA 4. The body parts of a 5 string walnut singlecut bass (this walnut is sick!) 5. the koa topped mahogany single bass body parts 6. Steve's coco GA 'boat' waiting for a top.

Well, this bad boy made its first noise this morning, so that was really exciting for me. Aside from the fact that the first strum after putting strings on a new guitar sounds more akin to a cough, I am really excited about the potential this guitar offers. I think Jake is going to love it.
