Hello Everybody
Thought I'd share a pic of my 1973/1989 hybrid Wolf being created by Matt Moriarty. The more astute 1973 Wolf aficionados will recognize that mine has chrome tuners which Matt tells me will be changed out to gold Schallers, a scalloped nut and black top hat knobs before shipping. I will update once received or when additional pics are available. Aesthetically, mine will be '73 with the exception of the electronics, transposed stickers and left handedness.
As for Matt, he's just a great guy to deal with and everybody on here knows of his reputation with regard to his "just exactly perfect" craftsmanship. Well, here's my first shot at adding a pic On the forum

Wife texted me at work that my guitar had arrived from Matt today. I didn't even get out of my work clothes. Had to tune it and play. I don't really have words to describe the beauty and craftsmanship. Hope you guys enjoy the pics.

If there are any jealous lefties with deep pockets, mine is available. Unless the Resurrection Tiger goes first. I'm definitely keeping one of 'em.

Thanks for the kind words everybody and Hogan, thanks for putting my photo on my thread, still can't figure out how to do that. I played my Moriarty for about 5 hours after receiving it yesterday. His craftsmanship and attention to detail is immeasurable. Afraid my good ol' Les Paul may never see the light of day again.

Vic, that lefty Moriarty you've got is a beauty. Was it just made or is that # 1? Kinda cool that Matt's a lefty, too. On a side note I'm thinking about selling my Gibson LP and a Martin and picking up that Cocobolo H&D you've got in your shop, someday when funds allow.

It was built about a year ago, I think ... but the owner never really played it. I am very impressed with the guitar. :shock:

That cocobolo Huss and Dalton 00 is a killer guitar!

Pretty sure that's it then- #1 of the Lefties- very rare and desirable guitar! Any lefties out there looking, that's THE one! Keep or sell, you are in a win/win on that one!

Totally agree. I drool over it. I'm finishing up a couple business deal loose ends, and then I'm gonna get serious about downsizing a couple guitars and upgrading on the acoustic front. Then I'm done - one exceptional electric and one exceptional acoustic (done except for the rest of the rig part) :lol:
