This is my personal guitar that I had build out of my wood By Big D Guitars. It won guitar of the month at guitar project.com
I like it a lot.

Here are some other book matches that will be soon a guitar. #1 Book Match is Redwood burl, #2 is Madrone Burl, #3 is English Walnut Crotch and # 4 is the blank of the finished LP you see on the first slide.

Oh Yah! I sing too and enjoy it very much!

If you play it as well as it looks you must be a really good musician.

Now I’m really jealous. If I didn’t already own two businesses, I would like to build custom basses for a living.
Maybe someday. I’ll follow that dream.

Awesome guitar.

That is a really beautiful guitar! Excellent craftsmanship.
Did you build it or did Big D guitars build it?
