Just finished the setup on this guitar. Couldn't be happier: with the way it sounds, the quality of the materials John supplied, and how patient he was when I called him in some sort of panic, starting when I glued the neck block into the sides upside down. I have two full pages of mistakes I made and processes I need to improve. Hoping to start the next one soon and eliminate as many of those mistakes as I can.

That looks great, Roy! Do you like how it sounds? Looks like your lacquer finish worked out fine.

Ain't it a treat to strum that first one? It remains a treat for the others too. Good job

Wow, that's a beauty! I can also attest to Mr. Hall's great patience, kindness, and friendliness. I hope my build can come out as beautiful as yours!
