    Default A few new Mowrys

    Hi folks, I try not to post shameless advertising here too often, but as it's been a few years...

    Here are a few new completions I thought I'd share. I had two different sets of matching instruments in this latest batch, which is always fun. The guitar and F5 have whimsical takes on some inlays that may look familiar. Thanks for looking!

    Wonderful, Andrew! I also saw photos of a beautiful 16" L-5 you made for a friend of mine. I am looking forward to seeing it in person. Maybe he will actually let me play it.

    Gorgeous, very nice work. I doubt any one will complain about posting more pictures of instruments like those. Nice to see some builds from the PNW.
