    Mescalero Red Tiger made substantial progress yesterday. Fretboard leveled, frets installed. Bridge and tailpiece located, drilled & mounted. A bunch of sanding and neck carving today. Maybe by the end of the day I’ll smear a bunch of hot hide glue in the neck pocket and make a unit out of this thing. 25FA1392-83CF-4BFC-9A4F-2FFA97F80A6C.jpeg B073E2A7-64A2-4442-867F-0730711EC80C.jpeg DEB5D8F1-9496-4534-8D8E-67779DC4C95F.jpeg

    Built a guitar a couple years ago, and made the bridge out of aluminum. Decided to make one out of steel, think the tone will be better~ IMG_20191212_151007410.jpg IMG_20191212_151045332.jpg IMG_20191212_153846284.jpg drilled, ready for paint then mounting:)

    WANT.
    All the guitars you've built with this wood have been stunning.
    Would love to have a nice redwood guitar like that.

    This Gibson DC get a new pickguard and Boostrap neck pickup added. Got to drill out a hole for the new body mounted input jack. And add a three way switch. Should be fun.

    Iced in this morning, so I mounted the bridge I made yesterday. Big change in tone, but the E & B strings are much louder and brighter. I'll message with set up and possibly saddle material. IMG_20191213_094834797.jpg

    I hope the recipient of said toys is grateful and respectful of your work and gift. Friend of mine made wooden toys for his grandson and the little...."guy" threw a fit because it wasn't the store bought gift he wanted.o_O

    His mother still thinks of the toys as hers .She is very protective of anything I made.He actually spotted 3 of the pieces on top of a cabinet a couple weeks ago . Everyday he wanted to be lifted up so he could check for more;)
