#Guitar 6. #spruce top. Passed structural implosion test. Sounds decent for having #strings for a few hours. Looking forward to hearing the #cedar one… And getting someone else to play them so I can get a better clip. #luthier

I went with #rosewood #bridge pins for contrast to the #locust. Should pull together with the #walnut in the #binding and #rosette too. Hopefully I’ll have #strings on the #spruce version of these two #guitars before bed tonight. #luthier #guitar

The #bridges are glued on both #guitars. Need to let the #HHG cure overnight before drilling for the #bridge pins. Getting closer on these. #luthier #ambrosia #maple #locust

I just can’t get enough of this old #architecture. Buildings that last for centuries with a bit of care and upkeep. I’ve been to #Germany quite a bit and I love it. I think I need to explore some other parts of #Europe in the near future.

Last day in #Germany. Typical overcast day after being a bit too hot. Flying back tomorrow…

A little #castle action in #Marburg, #Germany. Up 36 hours yesterday. Feel better today after some sleep.

Taking off to #Frankfurt shortly. I’ll be in #Germany tomorrow morning…in a few hours. Hopefully I sleep on the plane.

Bought this #stereo #tube #preamp kit several years ago. My best friend came in from NC this week with his good #solder rig and we knocked it out. Sounds really good. Just need to make a nicer #wooden base.  I think we will be collaborating on more #audio projects soon.

Put my last coats of #truoil #varnish on yesterday. Letting the finish harden for a week when I’m out of town. Then #polishing and finishing them up. #guitar #luthier #ambrosia #flamed #maple
