    Default Newest Bulldog off the bench

    Here's my number 100 Kratzer/Bulldog fresh off the bench. I have actually built over 150 instruments, but this was 100 in the Bulldog line.....the others I built under K&G
    Kratzer & Gresham in the 90s

    Barry, that is an amazing piece of wood for the back! Kind of looks like something out of The Lord of the Rings. Congrat's on #100.

    A fantastic instrument. Is that an eagle's face on the back?

    Definitely has a real cool vibe! Love the back. Turn the pic upside down and I see an alien’s face is there. Lp

    It does look great, but a Bulldog?

    I'm an Auburn graduate. Sorry, Barry. Could you build one that says "War Eagle?"
