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
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!

My friend said to me that I used to sing or play guitar with d minor key. That was 35yrs ago.
And now I’m not even able to pinch the strings for d’minor chord.

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?
