If you had told me in September, 2009, that I would reach 50 guitars and beyond, I would have said fugattaboutit!
But here I am.
Had not posted any guitars in a while, decided to put up a couple.
This one is number 50, and for now I kept it, although a guy called today inquiring about it. I quoted him a little high, almost hoping he will not buy it, but he said he wants to think about it for a day or so. Also have a luncheon meeting this week with a local writer who is also a long time guitarist, wants to do an article about my guitars, so he wants to see this one and play it. Take it and my portable amp to the lunch. Who knows, might be gone soon…
Anyway, this one is yellowheart, with a bloodwood pickguard. Features an african mahogany backside, with yellowheart racing stripes. Neck is mahogany with a rosewood fretboard, mother of toilet seat inlays. Grover tuners. The body features a German curve.
Twin Armstrong four wire humbuckers, with series/parallel switches for additional tonal options. Three way switch, one volume, one tone, and of course the Bigsby. Did some extra goodies on the headstock. I buy my necks, just not monetarily feasible for me to be competitive if I would build a neck like this. I’d have to double my pricing.
Anyway, it plays great, and has fabulous sounds.
Thanks for lookin!
