Here is a 1976 guitar still on the path!
This is one of the last guitars I made in my Canadian
years. The current and original owner, Walker Fanning, recently sent me
these pictures and a pleasent note describing the guitar as his most
prized possession. Looks like a 00 to me, though certainly my own
design. Also a 3 piece top! There is a nice chunk of Malachite inlaid
into the truss rod cover. Head-plate and bridge are Brazilian Rosewood.
At this time I was stack laminating my necks, so it is a two piece
headstock and probably 4 pieces to make the heel.
