What's been going on in the shop - next chapter

Recommended Posts

My next Shishkov will have a quilted body as well.  And that won't be the last fingerboard with crowns either!

I love how small that last inlay looks and the effect of the binding.

Quilt top aint bad either!

Isn't gluing that fingerboard to the back of the neck going to make it play funny?

I haven't had really bad G.A.S. for a couple years now, but it's starting to hurt. If that's yours Muse, you're a lucky man. That top is incredible.

I'd agree with you if:

1. I was in fact lucky (my last trip to the casino proved once again that I'm not)

2. I wasn't working with a guy like Mike who showed me a wood sample of the exact flame I was looking for after I described what I wanted.

So, luck didn't really factor into it.

Tell us how you're going to dress that one out.  It's beautiful.

I'd prefer to let those details unfold on their own but the finish will be inspired by a somewhat iconic New Hartford Hamer, and I'm making three tweaks to the accoutrements for personal preference and to set it apart a bit. Other than those things, the Cobra design is right on the money for me.

Jaw dropping beautiful.  This dance of a thousand veils approach to these guitars just wets the appetite all the more.

It's McChris, so 'ELO Out of the Blue' or 'Mister Blue Skies'?
