    I'm not a fan of traditional guitars. That's why I really dig this one. Great job.

    Pete, the buddy of mine that gave me the slab of burl for working on His Ovation, just had to have this guitar. He called dibs on it a while ago, and I guess He wasn't kidding. :)
    It's headed out in a nice black lined tweed case. He stopped by Sunday and couldn't put it down. Totally in love with it!!!!

    It's never hard to sell good merchandise that you believe in. The passion we put into our builds is contagious in more ways than one. I get fired up and inspired to build. If a buyer catches that excitement from me, it's over. He can't hold back. He's the proud owner of a new git-fiddle, trying to figure out how to explain or hide it from the wife, girlfriend or both.

    Sounds like your buddy caught it and caught it hard.

    They have to be the easiest of all guitar bodies too build.

    Kind of late to ask, but what is that yellow cap in the wiring photos?
