I finished up a couple of swamp ash guitars this week. This one is headed to Thunder Road Guitars in Portland.
Swamp ash body with transparent blond finish, birdseye maple ”C” neck with 9.5” radius, CAR neck pickup with recessed polepieces, Novak bridge pickup, reversed switch plate and an inlayed birds pickguard. Weight 7lbs 6oz.
Nick Rossi sent me this magazine article from October ’40. Some great pictures of the factory in it’s heyday. My ’42 Triumph came shortly after this. I wonder how far in advance they started fabricating parts? I wish I could visit.
