-----^ well, okay. That's pretty glamorus for a raw wood top.

That's the spruce-topped Tele thinline I'm making for Olds442.

that bookmatch is so tight, I had to draw a pencil on it just to find it for centering purposes.

Yep, LTDave's a nice guy making nice, superior guitars.
Unless it's Friday, he's had a few and he's got a hammer in his hand..!


I only smash broken, damaged shit. I've got this blue bucket I put bad neck blanks and such.

Maple, Mahogany and Swamp Ash smell lovely in our fireplace in the winter.

P.S.: I was referring to the "Ban Hammer"!

See, I thought you were saying I put my banhammer to the wood.

Well, Bobby.. Sometimes I do. The more procedures you have done before you mess it up, the more the piece was worth. Sometimes it does get the hammer. And it get's tossed to the shop-dog for a toy.


Here's something funny. Our shop-dog "Pugsley", she chews on scraps of wood that I've chosen to work with that day.

Walk into any guitar shop, and you'll see bits of wood here and there. Just look around the saws.

So If i'm carving a maple neck, she's on the apron with a piece of maple. Chomp, chomp, chomp.

If I'm putting a mahogany body blank through the planer, she's out there on the apron with a chunk of Honduran.

Right between her paws, where she's got a good grip. Chomp, chomp, chomp.

"what are we working with today, Pugs? Oh, curly maple! Nice choice!"
