I'm pretty stoked, not just the top, but the black limba has a real killer look to it as well .. I'll see if he can send me a pic of the back too. The top though looks 10 times better then I tought it would from the raw wood picture, glad I went with it
i was just thinking of posting this morning to ask if any progress had been made on it..but didn't want to come off as a pest
i come back from lunch and here it is...funny...
man that is going to be so sweet when it's done..
i'm patiently awaiting an overdue bonus ($$$) that could be headed Doug's way, if he'd be interested in doing a type of set neck super Strat/Soloist for me... want to wait till i get the coin though before i contact him..
I went to his website today .. seems like he's up to his Neck in work right now, so I figured I check in see how things are going, sound like my guitar is next in line for some more finishing work and then hardware ...
Nice guitars guys! When I was looking for a luthier I emailed Doug twice, but was never replied to, Oh well. I have a Schroeder in the works & am delighted with the process. Jason is great to work with, as I'm sure Doug is! It just goes to show you that it DOES all work out in the end. I have to admit that I AM curious as to why I never got a reply though. Have fun!
"As far as I can tell Doug is over his head in work right now, and he doesn't do a lot by email usually. Likes to talk to the person at least once before starting"
Understood, but a response saying, "Call me" would be in order, doncha think? I wouldn't put up an email address if I didn't want to be contacted that way. Like I said, I'm not pissed, just curious, that's all. I'm MORE than happy where I'm at, with Schroeder. Color This camper happy!
