The first pic is of our business card from 74 with the old address.It was a farm house and the shop was a chicken coop. Inside the farm house in the livingroom is were Doug and I finalized the drawings for "The Garcia".We moved later that year out to 3900 Sonoma Hwy also in Santa Rosa.
The neck assembly that Doug is holding is from a guitar I absolutely loved. It was a Pendulous guitar that had a dark chocolate brown figured western walnut top, neck, back and core were Birdseye maple. The top was 3/16 instead of a full 1/4 inch thick, so it had this inherit acoustic sound to it, She was a pretty one.
Here are two guitars that preceded my apprenticeship with Doug, Built in 73. The Rosewood was a guitar built in hopes that Jerry would purchase it. He didn't but it sparked his interest in having us create a new custom guitar for him, hence"The Garcia"
The second is a pic of a D.Irwin Les Paul.
