That is stunning. Was it difficult to bend the quilted maple sides? What rib thickness did you use?

Thread Bump: my buddy C.J. Lewandowski is having Jonathan build him a custom "Trinity" model.

BTW, C.J. says that Wayne Benson "put down" his Loar for the McClanahan...

Wayne's vintage F-5 is from 1925.

Wayne's vintage F-5 is from 1925.
It is considered an "unsigned Loar." That's why I said he set his Loar down. My bad. Regardless, he hasn't played it since he received his McClanahan, which is one heck of a testament
