Guitars Almost Ready For GFA 2015

The two instruments being built to show and that will be available for purchase at the GFA convention in Oklahoma City this June are almost ready.

For these guitars I worked toward maximum treble sustain and a little more darkness and density of sound than usual. Both were briefly strung in the white last week and first impressions were very positive. Varnishing and French polishing are currently wrapping up and the guitars will be complete in just a few days!
