I have been building guitars and mandolins for awhile.I am currently building a few wolfs for myself and customers.If you guys are serious I will build a few more if anyone is interested in owning one.I will post some pictures of the one I'm building right now after the holiday.I could keep the price down by offering unfinished bodies without the hardware if you would like.As with all my guitars playability comes first.The one I'm keeping has a mahagony core instead of purpleheart because of my bad back and shoulder.I will not build tigers because of the price and availability of cocobolo right now.I love the site have been coming here for years just never posted anything.Merry CHRISTMAS David from upstate NY
Hey now! That sounds really cool...I've always loved the Wolf guitar...Rosebud's probably my favorite Jerry guitar, and I've always been REALLY intrigued w/ the Travis Beans, too....would love to play one of those some day.
I'm currently getting a custom guitar built from S.B. McDonald in Long Island, NY. He makes beautiful stringed instruments, as well. My guitar is featured on his December blog post (sweet!). It's a 3/4" thick top piece of Tiger Maple (which came from a plank that I held onto for 10 years and was given to me by one of my best friends who was selling Tiger Maple to Gibson at the time) and the back is a 3/4" thick piece of mahogany. The stripes from the maple just cascade down the sides...it's insanely gorgeous and is supposed to be done sometime in January (I hope!). You can view the whole history of this guitar (from the planks to the current body w/o electronix) on the PHOTOS page of my band's website: www.theCAUSEjams.com It's all the way @ the bottom, I think.
Rock on & keep building beautiful guitars!!
