0075...

Recommended Posts

Well, I was joking around on the "0063" thread about how I was only twelve guitars away.  Some pointed out that they don't necessarily come in order.  Then, I got a second e-mail.  The first was in October to select the board.  It's #1 in the pic...

Last night's e-mail was just a little more fun...

I was always an off the wall (no kidding!) kind of guy, especially for guitars. You likee, you buyee... I'm usual a hyper nervous wreck in buying stuff... and I'm an impatient prick... but surprise, I wasn't with my guitar. I said "It will be beyond your stoopid expections great..." and it has been. and dangit if I haven't asked for a second quote!


You will love this guitar. I never had a custom Hamer, but I think Mike has really designed some classical styled guitars with a flair...No one could have told me three years ago that an LP Jr. would no longer be the shape, the Shishkov is better. I can't believe I wrote that, but I did.

Mr. Shark, you are in for a great experience (maybe third time around!). You may have the first Shisharem?

How this is new news escapes me.  My ability to suck has been known for ages.  :)

My apologies for the hijack, Shark. 0075 is going to be a monster.

Together, the common themes of binding, color tone, and knob color tone (tone knob color?) really stand out.  Outstanding!

Yes! The rules are the first Shishkov harem owner is to be literally stoned, out of rage, jealousy and unbelief.... Then we imitate him and remember him fondly!

While you guys are stoning him, I'll call dibs. :lol:

Yes indeed he meant Veatch, and so did I! He has the first Shish harem, we all should endeavor to do the same, hence my statement that we imitate him.

So, I came upon pics of #78 on FaceBook and thought to myself, "Self, I'm guessing your guitar is in the same batch!"  And, I was right.  Trish sent me pics of my top and said that the semi-hollows are being finished up and my guitar is in process.  Here's two pics of the top glued up and getting ready.  Is it wrong for me to giggle aloud?

Every once in a while, you run into a board that can only be called "flamed quilt"....unless you called it "quilted flame". Same thing, only different. :-)
