    P-70 on the left GA-70 on right. The GA is sort of 000 size. Maybe a bit thinner.

    I did the inlay in both of them

    What's the black thumbprint on the GA's soundhole?

    That’s much better than 2 little bald guys covering the audience in smashed produce and then hosing them down.

    I love OOO and OM guitars. Do you finger pick, flat pick or both?

    That small one is the ultimate couch potato/comfy chair guitar. So light and responsive- both to pick and fingers

    Those are truly works of art! I've been enamored of them since Doc Watson. Jim Hurst also does amazing work on one.

    I play primarily with a flatpick

    Not to brag but I was the National Traditional Old Time and Country Music 2001 Flat Top Guitar contest winner. And I have the plaque to prove it! ;)

    Somwhere on YouTube you can find Jim Hurst ringing out the P-70 prior to getting shipped to me. Fortunately Jim left a few notes in it for me

    Ah shucks...first time I did it, I went to the Mississippi and found some clamshells...cut, ground, sliced and filed the shell until I had the shapes I saw in the photos... then routed out the fingerboard wood (in a d-28 no less) and glued it in. That was 48 years ago.

    Magnificent work, @Buckocaster51! Would love to hear how those two sound. Have any video of them?

    Also, do you have any footage from the contest in 2001?

    I LOVE the P-70. Would you please send it to me? I can provide a valid postal address.
