  1. Lemme think---how did that go? Oh yeah. BITE ME, TWIZZLESTICK!
  2. Back in the mid 70s I had a D-35 built in the mid 60s that was a typical Martin CANNON. Loved that guitar. It got sold when I got broke. Life sucks sometimes. Few of the newer Martins I've played have impressed me much. Go figger.
  3. The neck is being made by Steve Parker. Straight-grain maple with an ebony board, big Strat headstock, 22 medium jumbo nickel/silver frets, two dots at the 12th fret (no other fb inlays), side dots. I'll cut a bone nut for it. Haven't chosen tuners yet. The pickguard is being made by Richard Flatt. Single-ply birch, no finish (haven't decided what I want yet). I'll be doing the pickup routs; he wasn't sure where to put them. It's an atypical design. Only two pot bores, centered between the usual three. Normal switch slot. Andrew Robertson wound the P90s. Really looking forward to he
  4. One-piece ash body created for me by Gary Price of Pryce Guitars. Cut for 2 P90s, no jack plate in the face (7/8" lower rim bore for Electrosocket). Building coats of tung oil here.
  5. Will this work? I suck at computers---YAY! It worked!
  6. For years I wanted a mahogany/spruce OM built to my specs (standard OM construction, trim &c of my choice). In May of this year, I got it. Mr. Freeman Keller, our very own fellow forumite, built it for me. It has turned out to be everything I wanted, he did an outSTANDing job. Its voice is just starting to really open up, so I have much to look forward to yet (not to infer it doesn't sound great as-is, but you know how it is with new acoustics). I currently own some 30 guitars of all kinds. None of them are real high-dollar collectibles but that doesn't concern me much. My retirement
  7. Sears Silvertone acoustic, 12th birthday, 1970! A friend's kid (now an adult) still has it.
  8. I played Mark's Messenger years and years ago (he's a homeboy). "Piece of junk!" was my thought---
