"Good looking start. I've been doing a few builds like this recently. Using a slab of spruce framing lumber (2x10") as the body core, and covering top & back with 1/8" hardwood like walnut, cherry, and now I have some zebra wood…"

"Hey, thanks guys!  Y'know, as I get better at this type of artwork I'm thinking about submitting some of my designs to t-shirt printing websites like Threadless, TeeFury or Woot.  I will definitely let y'all know, though."

Small, watermarked image of the second cigar box guitar pinup to be used as a premium for my upcoming IndieGoGo campaign. I may consider changing the background color from white to something else. I'll have to think on it.

Hi Michael, I really like your work. You are a fine craftsman. I dig the unique look of each one of your instruments. The different sound hole and headstock shapes are great!  Keep em coming!
