Progress Picture

I’m getting close on a couple of Specials and these two 5 string mandolins. The finished one is my personal that I built while I had the Glenn Tarver Bigsby in the shop a few years back. I was lucky to have access to it for a month. I also had it X-rayed.

Check back in about a month for finished pictures.

Happy New Year.

Here’s a fresh swamp ash Roadmaster that features a few new items,

  1. A fixed cast aluminum tailpiece. I made a batch of these last year and I’m finally getting around to using them.
  2. New pickups I’m calling SV-1s, they feature plastic covers in cream, black or brown. Lacquer potted with slotted nickel fillister head pole pieces.
  3. And a new label designed by Chris Wilkinson. I’ll be using these in all of my guitars from here on out.
