Wow, that is beautiful. Good job.

Thanx guys. She sounds really good I am really starting to get the sound I have been after, the first three sounded pretty good but this is much better. It is very loud and has a nice clean woody sound thats even across the fret board. It has a tight grained red spruce top and a hard maple back so it will probably take some time to break her in but she should be a great bluegrass mando.

rmoss-is there any way you could post a sound file. I am really curious how it sounds. That is reall beautiful.

Wow... that is one of the most gorgeous back and sides i've ever seen, seriously. Love to hear it. Great work.

Apr-07-2004, 11:03pm
Thanx guys

I am going to try to post a sound clip some time tomorrow. I don't have any fancy recording equipment so I am a little worried about the sound quality but I will give it a try.

Man, but the finish on that one is beautiful! I'm a huge fan of the slightly unconventional bursts, and that one delivers in spades!

Just out of curiousity, do you build for customers yet, or are you still working out "the kinks" in your instruments (or, conversely, are you an established builder and I've just never heard of you)?

Beautiful work rmoss. Nice deep dark color. Beautiful quilt! Also, I really like the [abbreviated] fretboard.

I was at Zepp's Country Music for the Tuesday night jam and talking with Joe, he said you brought #4 into the music store a little while ago...said it was quite something to behold first-hand! Way to go, it looks beautiful!
