hmmm... I don't seem to be seeing any pictures of all these guitars? Oh well...
For my 60th, I had James Goodall build me this beauty! I wanted a redwood top, both to commemorate my time here on the Redwood Coast, and because I'm quite fond of a warm sound, especially on the treble end... It had been four decades since I've owned a mahogany acoustic, and I was interested to have another, as well!
She's an amazing instrument and I am LOVING IT!
This was 40. Ordered it new. Started a relationship with Reverend that continues today. This pic is from a few years ago. I'm 52 now. The guitar gets better every year. Love it.
50. My g/f wanted to build me a special guitar for 50, but she was so busy I couldn't see her fitting it in. It was to be a Firemist Gold Custom Esquire with a Transition decal, Fender Bigsby, and Maple Cap. Maybe for 60. ;-)
Instead, she offered to mix-up a special color Burgundy Mist and spray this Reverend.
Did not take nearly as long as a full build, but she still got to do something special for me. Her Shop made the guard from 3/8" plexi and she sprayed it Gold from behind.
