Re: Mai-Guitar?

I've been working on a lot of natural finishes lately. I bought a mega-planner that lets me do a lot more cool stuff. I like this one.

Looks great. Wish you would do a square heel in that finish. I've got a USA Custom neck that needs a square heel.

Re: Mai-Guitar?

I would like to share my opinion about Mai-guitars, if somebody still need opinion. I`ve ordered limba body two years ago. I cannot find any other words than "Chris is abso****inlutely coolest guy in guitar making business I`ve ever meet". I`m very picky in terms of my guitars. Chris was so patient to me, it`s almost beyond believe.
Happy to see nice tops on Your bodies Chris!

Re: Mai-Guitar?

Just my .02 dealing with Chris is great and I'm very happy with the guitar body he made. I posted this in another thread but just recently refinished it this past weekend.

Re: Mai-Guitar?

Wow, that one is absolutely killer. Is it stained basswood or what is it? I like the backplates too. This looks so much better than Woody. I'd buy it.

I just bought a used swirled Mai-body and it is top notch. Can't wait to have it completed.

Thanks man, that's Korina - stained with Minwax Esspresso & Polycrylic wipe on satin clear coat. Took a little 320 paper to it post-stain to lighten it up a bit and bring back the grain.

Post your swirl when you get it finished!
