My ao Wolf

My ao Wolf

Postby NSP » Tue Dec 10, 2013 10:38 am

ao is getting real close to finishing up my Wolf, so I thought I'd share a few photos. I'm going with a bit of an incognito vibe, so no Wolf inlay and for fret markers we're doing brass rings with the larger ones having cocobolo centers. He's also got a custom brass p/u ring in the works that will stray from the standard rectangle. Wiring will be s/h/h (DiMarzios).

It's currently in finish, then wiring and set-up and she'll be out the door. Hoping to be playing it by New Years.

I'll post pics and clips of the final product when she arrives.

Cool and daring omitting the wolf inlay. I dig it the MOST!

That reminds me- I took this photo a few weeks ago of some neat clouds over the house. I told my wife that I wanted a guitar that looked like this- 5A stratocumulus!

The best three words in the English language! Looks beautiful, enjoy- and we expect a detailed report.

Andrew is a true professional in every sense and a master of his craft...and a hell of a nice guy to boot. This guitar has blown me away and I couldn't be happier....thank you ao!
