    There are craftsmen and there are artists. Your luthier is an artist. Absolutely beautiful!

    So...what is that under the fretboard?
    Theft control like library books?

    Really great job. That top reminds me of my old '79 Hamer explorer (Standard).

    I bought a brand new Explorer around '83 that looked a lot like this guitar, i also bought a new Hamer Blitz off Paul Hamer at the same time
    Both were excellent guitars
