I really like these! Great job!
You never disappoint my friend. Beautiful work as always!
Gorgeous. . . as always!
What color should she be? I was thinking black. Almost like a tux with the dots and pickguard.... but a 3 tone burst could be cool....
Buddy asked me to make him a strat. Here is the kicker. Its pine that was cut down about 10 years ago. Its been air drying in a huge barn full of pine, maple and oak since. His friends father cut it down on his land , milled it all at the young age of 75. He will be picking me up some maple next week for the neck. No wabi sabi involved.
This is my standard Mendocino model (semi-hollowbody) but with humbuckers and a tobacco burst top and black back. That's a redwood top.
Stringing up a pair.
This has been an on going series of putting the funk into guitars with upholstery,

Gorgeous!!! Both !
Been fighting that "w" my entire life.
Holy ****, Pete has Mad Cow disease!
Here the last one that leaves the shop for 2017, and it has a unique feature.
The customer asked for a transparent magnetic pickguard, so he's able to sandwich any kind of decorative layer between the top and the pickguard.
That's how it came out:
A couple of details on Mike's Eve. I wanted this to be a personal guitar, so I'm making the control covers his wife and daughters' favorite colors.The middle one will be a pastel blue in a day or two.
And the difference some finish makes on this killer birdseye maple:
Looking lovely, Rich! Can't wait to see the light blue on the back. It's a very sweet personal touch. Also, the finish on the neck brings out so much detail in the bird's eye maple, and really makes those dots pop. Hard to see the belly contour in all that grain, but I am sure it will be a comfy fit. Looking very much forward to receiving her!
