This just completed in Feb 2022, another fully appointed A style oval hole in oil varnish. This one was purchased before completion even as I had hoped to list it on my Recently Completed page. Check out the comments and recording that Mike made of it just a few days after receiving it. It also features:

  • Red maple figured sides and back
  • fully bound in classic ivoroid: top, back, headstock and fingerboard
  • Golden Age “Relic” tuners with ivoroid knobs in vintage nickel finish w/ matching tailpiece
  • 1 3/16″ width ebony nut
  • Shop made ebony adjustable bridge/saddle
  • Adjustable truss rod and 3 piece laminate neck construction
  • Soft “V” neck profile
  • 10″ Radiused fingerboard with MOP dots and side markers
  • oil varnish finish“I spent an hour or so with our baby last night.

And gorgeously perfect! Thank you, my friend. Thank you for your easy friendship, for your integrity, and for your mastery of this fine art”  Mike Buesseler, owner #277
