Hey all,

Sorry I haven't been doing a good job keeping up with posting build pics, I know everybody likes them, including me. But, better late than never.

This one is a 000 size with a 24.9 scale. It's a scratch build, with a neck from Hanelei Moon. Scalloped sitka bracing, port oxford cedar kerfing. Black walnut, with englemann top, maple binding, B/W/B/W purfling, ebony fretboard and bridge. The few accents and the fretbord markers are black pearl. Enjoy, and all comments very welcome.

Chris.

Thanks all. Chris at Hanelei Moon does a fantastic job producing custom necks. I highly recommend him. This neck is Claro walnut, but matches the black walnut B/S pretty well.

I am in love with how you did the side position markers on the neck. Thats the first time I have ever seen that. Its amazing! Did you have to put those parkers in when binding the neck, or did you cut the slots after?
I really, really like that. The whole thing looks great!

Tony, I cut the little pieces of black pearl, sanded two sides square, and then did the binding and position markers at the same time as I worked down the neck. The binding was cut and sanded to length one piece at a time.

Glad you like it.

Chris.

Nice! I also recommend Hanalei Moon necks, I am working with a couple right now!

I too like the side marker design. I mocked up a zebrawood fretboard with wenge binding, and used pearl the same way, though I had them pitched 45 degrees. ended up taking the binding off to make a narrow neck for my twin sister. VERY small hands.......

Nicely done, Chris! Should look great under finish. What are you using for a finish?

I just got delivery of another neck from Chris at Hanalei Moon this past week. This is my third neck from him. He does a very nice job.

I'm going to send this one out to Joe White for finishing. I've decided that I like building a whole lot more than I like wet sanding.

I have a beautiful, new mahogany/maple/EIR/maple/mahogany short scale neck from Chris that I just got waiting for me to finish this guitar. Next up, curly mahogany with rosewood binding, EIR fingerboard and bridge.

Yeah, Chris, beeyooootifull job.
I love the combo of walnut and maple...going to do one myself. I have the B & S Claro Walnut already for an OM.
Is that walnut neck a one piece?

Kevin, it's a five piece laminated neck from Hanalei Moon here in NJ. He does terrific work. Built custom to your specs. He also does one piece necks for those who don't like the laminated look.

Tony, come out anytime, we're only about 10 miles from the GW bridge.

Actually Chris, shoot me an e-mail through my profile on here. You are the closest forum member to Brooklyn. And your skills are far superior to mine if you dont mind sharing. Plus, I have not driven a Cobra replica in ages. OK...never. But I am sure I would be good at it!

Beautiful build! Walnut like that makes me wonder why people would build with anything else.

The neck is a work of art. I particularly like the headstock - the notches add a touch of elegance.

I hope my third build is anywhere close to that good.

Chris, seeing that neck made me send an email to Hanalei Moon. I was going to make a three or five piece neck for my next build and have this love/hate feeling about carving necks. Chris's prices are very reasonable and they look beautiful and my finger is quivering on the trigger.......

Mine is going to be koa bound in maple - yours convinces me that I made the right choice. Beautiful guitar and thanks for sharing.

I'm going to send it to Joe White in Indiana. Finishing is his specialty. Joe does the finish for a number of luthiers.

Chris, would you feel comfortable discussing his price, or maybe emailing me what he is charging and for what kind of finish? I've been in contact with Adam Stark, and would love a comparison...especially since Joe is a lot closer... I could probably drive it instead of paying $80-100 for insured shipping each way.

Thanks guys, I think it's turning out well.

Yes, I'm anxious to hear it too. Rumor has it the Joe is going to ship it tomorrow. Can't wait. Closed up number 4 Sunday. Ordered the top for number 5 today. It's going to be Oregon Myrtle and Sitka, haven't decided on bindings and appointments yet.

Chris.
