Guitars on the Work Bench





People sometimes ask me why I just don't finish one or two guitars at a time like most other builder?   "I don't know...  I have a short attention span?"  "Sort off."  But doing "set up" adjusting the tools and machinery tends to take longer than doing the actual work.  So once set-up, I like to run off a number of copies, sets, part, whatever.  I also like to see things "in the clamps" waiting for the glue to dry while I work on something else.   Ok, it don't often happen that way, but as you can see, the guitars are starting to line up anyway.  Plus I like the look of the collection.

Then there is the fact of French Polishing.  It takes a long time to do, and you can only do so much of it at a time on any one instrument.  And that is the big reason for the back up and yes... I'll stick to that line for now.

So, here is a list of projects and photos of instruments under way.  Note;  spec instruments get pushed to the back of the line so completions are not in number order.  Any of the available instruments still have options for customization so if you see something you like, let me know and lets talk.
