Through the fire and flames...
Nice fiddle. And what is that amazing looking wood stove?
It's getting closer. I'm going to do a dirty lemon burst, and a dark faded violin brown, for the back. There will be an aged patina to the replica. It will be awesome!
Thanks. Stove is an Elm, by Vermont Iron Stove Works. It's one old-timer doing everything by hand in a little shop, and each stove is custom made to order. Ours is a 30" barrel stove, and heats our 170-year-old, 3800 sq. ft. house through the wicked northern Vermont winter with ease.
It's inching closer everyday. The cold is about to break in the Northeast and then the nitro can cure properly. The back is getting grain filled and sealed. Then the top color. It's beautiful!
This is my new acquisition..
That's beautiful, Michele!
Thanks a lot!
Don't know that I ever posted this one...

The fret work...
Here's mine (not that many will care).
Based on a Norlin era Silverburst
Here's how it looked naked. Note the 3 piece maple neck with the volute
I gotta learn how to post multiple pics in a post lol
It's just a matter of weeks now, (hopefully). Those are Jescar jumbo Stainless steel frets. I love the feel of stainless steel frets. It's going to be a beast. The builder has given the working name "Scar" for this guitar. I dig it.
Gary Moore "Greeny"???
Hasn't the builder heard of Peter Green? (Of whom BB King said: "He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.")
Nick is a huge Gary Moore fan and also a great guy. I live in Miami and have plenty of luthiers around me but I’d rather send my guitar up to him to be worked on. That’s how good he is.
I'm certain Nick knows the story behind Greeny. In all fairness though. Gary Moore owned the guitar way longer than Peter Green did. And IMO Gary Moore is a better guitar player than Peter Green.
