A little pinch of my latest guitar c... 

I have not shown one of my guitars in a while. This one completed in Oct. Mr. McGuire took for test drive last night. He played it for about two and half hours, after that it figured out it was a guitar. I made another longer video of his playing some levant stuff and more solea if you want me to upload it ...

Thanks for looking. Next up: Foro member Ralexander will get his Port Orford box. I'll put up some pictures later in Nov. so he can show it off.

Can't quite tell from the angle. Is this a spruce/cypress setup?

Beautiful guitar, Stephen. Jason's playing is exquisite, but he is playing an exquisitely made guitar.

Cheers,

Bill

This playing is actually too good not to share. I hope you enjoy Jason's toque.

You can see pictures of this guitar being French polished here, along with my greasy hippie hair.

Foro member Juan'da Bomb took these photos. Where would I be without these friends like Juan and Jason? Juan is working on becoming a good photographer. He shoots, goes back home and studies and then goes out to shoot more pictures. I bet Escribano does the same thing to get his beautiful results. Thanks guys for the support and I love your respective arts too.

Jason wanted to take it, but his wife smacked him around while I ran out of the house with it. I'm making him a maple spruce cutaway now. He'll have a nice quiver of Canin, Deutch and Faulk cutthroats.

And coming for you Ricardo that is high praise. Thank you.


You know it takes a whole container of Morton Salt to make them sound like that.

Hey that pic of you holding the shavings, that's nice. I'm going to do that.

Really beautiful looking and sounding guitar, Stephen.

Jason's playing is jaw-dropping.

Hey Stephen,

For underprivileged like me; please load up some pics right here, so that I may have a glance too. ( About to swap providers soon, allegedly to one with much less censoring. - Currently on dial-up, besides.)

I remember a photo of a blanca of yours that was screamingly beautiful.

I looked through my photo sets and realized I don't have one of the completed guitar for this one. I found one of the whole guitar while in the French polishing process though, and also a rosette pic that wasn't in my Dropbox set above:

Juan - I don't know jack about photography but these pics have a nice feel. Can't wait to see some shots of mine during french polish!

Man, Jason can really play his ass off. A lot of that reminded me of the toque on Pedro Sierra's new disc.

Ricardo said he liked it because it was not a hippie-dippie fancy mess.



Just say NO to Burl

- Nancy Reagan

--------------

To be serious for 30 seconds, I looked at what Manuel Ramirez did 100 years ago and thought if I can do half as good I will be ok. In my opinion rosette making has gotten out of hand and more people try to be too complicated without really ever grappling with the basic elements. I'm always trying to distill things down visually to bare bones and make that interesting. There will always be those buyers who think more complicated is better, but I will keep to my path.

I find it humbling to try to extend the tradition of the Spanish like Santos and Manuel R. instead of inventing something American- I'm looking for a way to be in that tradition, but not be a direct copier. Manuel Ramirez made some of the best rosettes with concentric circles, but mine are not as good, yet. I might get it in ten more years. I still believe in the sublime, as stupid as that sounds.

What tickled me the other day is a painter friend visited me and looked at the tie block cover on the bridge. He said right away, that is a landscape! Yup.

Nice. Now is "V" for vendetta or the show about Reptilian Aliens disguised as humans come to control and eat us?

Thank you for the pics, Juan!

Esthetical overall composition, and friendly appearing edges.

( You got no mp3 to insert, Stephen?)

It´s the victory symbol.

I just learned where it stems from. Any of you got an idea?

Yes, I can totally see that now after looking at it on a better screen. Lovely!

The flashing projections of color on the wall are rather sci-fi, very fitting for Jason
