I decided to go with gloss. With Terry's impeccable finish chops, the neck feels great.
What a great explanation! Thank you for this Terry! I know of many non believers... could I have your permission to copy/paste this? I know some folks who need to read this.
Thank you! Feel welcome to copy paste.
I think very similarly to Terry about this. It's one of the many reasons I went with Terry to build this piece. And he knocked it out of the park - way out of the park.
Terry set out with a very specific end product and goal in mind, and was extremely successful in achieving what he set out to build - and what I wanted to play/own.
There is so much depth, experience and knowledge to Terry's approach. As stunning as this instrument is in-person, the real craziness to this guitar lays with how it sounds and plays - especially for a true 'Burst scale single cutaway guitar.
Terry isn't a master builder - that description falls so far short of what he brings to the table. He's a true master craftsman. Big difference IMHO.
LOL, I know what you mean on not daring to touch the thing......I go through the same thing......just reading this thread now.....its like a good book. lol So, I read on !
Congrats on a great guitar and having it home........I would consider it a lifetime keeper.
Thank you. I agree; it's a "lifetime guitar".
Guitar continues to astound. What an absolutely brilliant piece of craftsmanship.
There is a pro photographer coming to the house tomorrow in order to do a photo shoot of the guitar. Can't get into details as to why it's being done, but suffice it to say that, in the coming months, folks will be reading more about this Carolina Custom.
In the meantime, I took this thoroughly unprofessional iPhone pic. It is really hard to describe how black and deep the finish is on this instrument. It's like looking down into a black wading pool. What a stunning, stunning piece of luthiery. Trying to describe it is like grasping at straws that don't exist.
that's gnu and awesome.
me all back-of-the-bus with the early mini-eq's and all, sniff.
Mini-Q = brilliant. I'm gonna get in the queue for a Spellcaster w/Mini Q.
I never get tired of looking at this guitar. The pictures are appreciated, Fred.
Thanks David. The photographer was over this morning. The difference in photos is pretty large - between my unprofessional pictures and those coming from a person with proper equipment and knowledge of how to use it.
I look forward to the proofs and final product.
