More pics ..

Just a couple shots to show one of latest completed instruments ..

At this point the same design is being repeated with different woods, hardware, & finishes .. new designs will be added in the future.

Nice work, fellas, and especially like the "hollow" inlays on this model.

I'm a big fan as you can see..... Birdseye surrounded by brass ring.  ;)

Thanks as always for sharing, love your work.
Dave

Thanks so much, Gary. It's actually an interesting little project. A friend of mine across the pond put a web article about if you'd like to check it out:

Beautiful work from both of you! Wow. How long is the wait list? gd, how many hours do you estimate from start to finish? I want to play 1. I am sure my 4 chords wont be worthy but it would still be fun!
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)

Thanks for the compliments,

The guitar business is my son's doing, I just built the CNC Router & a few other tools for him to use in his endeavor ..
I really don't know what the wait time is right now .. he might have something ready to ship for all I know.
Hope I'm not violating any policies on the forum here, but his name is Joel & his contact info is: jmarsh@marshguitars.com if you would like to investigate further.

Hi Gary.  That is some beautiful work!  There seems to be many years of experience behind your and your son's craft.  There are many details to getting a CNC machine just right and even more to get a guitar just right for a given player.  Very well done!

Thanks for the kind words,

I think the kid really has some skills (but then I guess I'm a little partial?)
Already got my 'payback' guitar .. it's beautiful!
I tried to upload a pic but can't seem to get one to go through ..
