That's a great story! Thanks so much for sharing.not many pics but a bit of a story.
Not long after building this guitar, a friend of our son's came over and was somewhat distraught. He said his band had a gig but he had to sell his guitar to pay his rent. I brought out the guitar and asked how he liked it. He said wow, so I said it's yours! have a good gig.
this is Mason with it.

About a year and a half later I heard that he sold the guitar but was too embarrassed to let me know. He sold it after a gig to the guitarist in a small touring band that ended up touring with Fugazi, even through Europe. So that guitar had some miles on it.
Fast forward to April of 2011, we went to our son's place in Gainesville, FL for my birthday. Somehow he had found that guitar, bought it back and gave it to my for my birthday!! What a son!! It shows some wear and I've done some work to it, but this is the condition in which I received it. Thank you for asking.

I hate you. If I built a thousand guitars I’d be grateful if I could build one half as nice as that.
