Love that finish.
Not a double top, but double back! It's awesome. To my knowledge, it was pioneered by my shopmate, classical guitarmaker Jeremy Clark of 52 Instrument Co. who has been doing it exclusively for the last 3-4 years.
The top is X braced:
Thank you Ron! You just made my year!
That is ridiculously cool!
Ah that's very interesting indeed!
Slamo Korina Tele gets a Lollar Gold Foil neck pickup. This was a request from the customer who purchased the guitar. All I can say is nice choice!
Stained the top tonight.

Wow, lots of cool stuff on this thread since I last looked. Literally on my bench right now is my Brute proto/#1. Had it under tension for a few weeks so now it's getting some tiny tweaks and a quick clean. A few other things are ready too but this is what I'm most excited about.

Mike's Eve, with McNelly pickups and a ...subtle...pickguard.
How about a new benchtop for my benchtop?
I know what im getting for Christmas. I may even get one for Mike (maybe).
I'm really excited about them. So far the response has been pretty good today.
Thanks bud! That's very kind of you!
If the measurements work out I'm thinking of having the drawer on the bottom as a pull out pedalboard, the guitar rack on top of it, and then sitting my Aether and 10u rack on the BT7. It would make things a lot tidier for me!
What about adding a
I feel like it could use somewhat of a ledge to keep things from rolling off and perhaps a net or thin layer of something underneath the neck stand. I'm clumsy.
