Man, that has to be the ugliest POS I have ever seen. I'd take a water soaked piece of MDF colored with crayons over that thing. LOL Just kidding, that is an amazing looking guitar. The wood choices/combo has to be one of the best I've seen, if I had all the choices in front of me and money was no object I believe that it would look something like that. And it's so amazingly clean, your work is top notch all around, very nice stuff man, thanks for making us all feel worse about our work. Jason

PS: I see a wicked volute back there, can you PLEASE get me a pic if possible, even if it is still just rough shaped. I just want to get a feel of how to place mine and see different shapes and sizes of them from different builds. Thanks and again amazing stuff!

Friggin Sweet! Thank you for doing that, I greatly appreciate it, it is a very nice looking volute. They are something that I never put much thought to, but always knew I would use one, so I needed some reference for basic placement areas and size. That pic helps a lot thank you. Please do tell us when you have your site going, I would like to check it out for sure. Thanks again and keep them progress pics coming. Jason
