Hey guys, so I got a new guitar! I custom ordered this one from Mike at Switchback Guitarworks. It's his Country Boy model, but with a modern twist. I absolutely love it! I got to choose all the hardware, appointments, finish, wood, color, inlay, pickup config, all with no up-charge. He emailed me weekly with progress reports and pictures of the process.
Oh yeah, curly maple neck!
I chose an aged white blonde nitro finish.
This is a handmade instrument that is as good as anything I have every tried or owned. Oh yeah, I paid $1150 shipped to my door, in the nicest G&G case I've ever seen. A friggin' steal! I can finally afford a legit handmade instrument. That's saying something, since I do music for a livin'.
Here is a demo I did of the guitar:

And I am not affiliated with Mike at all, just a happy customer excited about the builder!
