The beauty of having a spruce supplier that puts serial numbers on each top he cuts. To be able to go there and find great, great wood that has been air dried for 8 years and find two tops that were cut almost exactly next to eachother. This happens to be perfect for my next project, my first builds for @thenorthamericanguitar, a matching pair of guitars with matching sets of brazilian rosewood that was also cut just next to eachother. Very, very excited for these! #lutherie

Sending this week off with a classic butt-picture. It might seem inapropriate but its actually quite fitting this time. About two weeks ago I hurt my back pretty badly, my hip twisted so that my spine pinched my sciatica nerve in my left leg, making it impossible for me to work for nearly ten days. I finally got an appointment with a chiropractor that was able to put everything back where it belongs. Hence the butt-pic to celebrate healthy hips!! #buttocks #lutherie

@erikigelstrom came by the shop for a light setup on his @fredholmguitars mandolin. While I did, he was kind enough to record this little clip of a used tenor guitar I just got in the shop. If you want to explore the wonderful world of fifths, please drop me a line! And if your swedish is a bit rusty, please just enjoy the wonderful playing in the third clip😃 #lutherie

Please meet the brand new Rasmussen Model R! I have been wanting to make a modern interpretation of a 00 size guitar for years, and this new model falls right between my Model C and Model 0, with its 14.25” lower bout. This first one, built for @guitargallerynashville will have a stunning old set of brazilian rosewood and an Italian spruce top. #lutherie

My new treasure! Here is Rasmussen guitars @rasmussenguitars model O. it's a newborn guitar! I met Rasmussen guitars last spring for the first time.

I’m incredibly thrilled and absolutely delighted to announce that starting this year, I will start working together with one of the best guitar show rooms on the planet, The North American Guitar in London. To start off our relationship, they have ordered a matching pair of brazilian rosewood guitars that I’m so excited to start working on. I will start building these in June and head over to London sometime in October to deliver them in person. Pictured are the two sister sets of brw that will be used for these two guitars. Also, here’s a short interview and introduction from their blog: link in bio! #lutherie

Removing the varnish for the bridge glue up. The varnish measures less than 0.004”/0.1mm but still adds quite a bit of amber tone to the very white italian spruce top. #lutherie
