Re: Fireman fanned 7.





Btw the Maple lams are puposely on the edge so only a small amount will show. I like to try a different twist on every build.

Re: Fireman fanned 7.

Again, a beautiful build started here. Loving the inlay design, but it looks like the frets are going to cover up a little bit of the dots on the 24th, no?

BTW.... where do you guys source these materials? I've found some pieces here and there but I'd have to take out a second mortgage to afford any of them....LOL

I got lucky with the Spalted Beech. I stumbled on to this fresh consignment a supplier.

Re: Fireman fanned 7.

HOLY CRAP!!!!

You must have 60 board feet there!!!! I can only guess what that set you back.

Close call on the 24th. That was either very lucky, or meticulously planned....

Re: Fireman fanned 7.

That guitar is crazy sexy. Put these pics up in all other guitar sites, too and you will end up with orders so vast you will have to hire us to work for you!

Is that spalted maple body super heavy? My Gibson L6-S thin solidbody, all maple, is as heavy as my Les Paul.
