Thanks so much for the complimentary comments!   Glad you enjoyed perusing my page!   Make use of all those pallets man!  You're doing some quality looking work here too my friend.  The two tone Fender style headstock is sweet!  I like your multi guitar stand too.  Keep up the good work.

Gdawg hi....yeah if you look at some of my rod bridges on my page, there`s just a sampling of what i make. I can custom make them to your spec`s if you like. Most of mine are the low profile type...3/8" height for 3-4 stringers and 6 stringers. Let me know if you have something special in mind.

The coin is a cool touch. Thanks for the kind wish. Hopefully I will have something to post soon. Right now I am collecting information and making a plan. I'll keep an eye out for your #3.

That was a fine guitar, and I had a great time talking to you. I'm going to have to get a guitar made by him as well. :)


Don't be a stranger, and let me know if there are any CBG shows going on over in the ATL. We can make a road trip over there and rock the house down!
