My favorite was a hand-made, Santa Cruz FS, but I didn't like walking around the house with a 4,500 acoustic guitar for me to dent and bang-up. For a finger style guitar it produced enormous and warm volume. I sold it 15 years later and broke even on it. I play my Martin D-28 almost every day. Dollar-for dollar, I like it the best. I had a bunch of electrics from Gretsch to Ricks to Gibsons. I was never much of a Fender guy, maybe because I am child of the 70s, I am down to just one honey, Gibson LP, standard.

Nice! Santa Cruz makes some incredible guitars! You're right, though, D-28s are hard to beat for production instruments. I play a hand-built grand auditorium sized acoustic. I got to where I just didn't care for the size/shape of dreadnaughts anymore, so I ordered something a bit different.

If you're going to have just one electric, it's hard to beat an LP. My electrics are two I built my very first one, and one I did as a bunch of experiments. The first one is a standard Tele layout, except the neck pickup is a P90. The other is my LP replacement. It's still a Tele body, but the scale length is only 25", has a set neck, and 2 hand-wound PAF spec humbuckers.

I only play acoustic about every 6 weeks or so in the church worship band, and I only play electric once a year with a parody rock band. I'm just too busy building to play much anymore.

Well Roger, you've got me thinking more about that email I got from StewMac with their sale Somewhere in that shed there is a compartmental box with some tools in it for building guitfiddles.

I'm glad to see another of your builds in the making. Keep posting!

I love the walnut pick guard on this. Tell me about your plans for finishing it - you said you were going to ebonize? Then clear coat? And if so, what are using for a finish? I built acoustic instruments (primarily concert-size guitars and flat-top mandolins) years ago...I had a guitar shop, Taylor dealer, all acoustic store. You have stirred some very happy memories!

Thanks, Chuck. Yeah, Stewmac's emails (especially the ones with Dan showing how to do something) always make it seem so easy

Thanks, Gregory. Yep, I shoot a couple of coats of lacquer on the pickguard when it's done.

Nice! I'd love to have my own shop at some point. It wouldn't necessarily be a standard music store, though. It would just be a Dog Tired guitars retail/manufacturing shop. I have an hour commute to/from work everyday, and I've spent many hours designing the space

Got the final color and clear coats sprayed on Saturday. I'll let it cure for a week or so, then I'll start the tedious sanding process. First I'll need to level the lacquer, then it's on to final sanding. I'll be doing this one in a matte rather than gloss finish. I also have to start applying finish to the pickguard as well.
