Guitar No. 11
The closest to perfection I have ever achieved with my French Polish, Guitar No. 11 is complete and was delivered in person to Jamie Monck in Louisville, KY on October 27, 2013.
The sound of the guitar is very, very close to the guitar I carried to the 2013 Guitar Foundation Convention (no. 9) where I met Jamie which isn't surprising due to the fact that the soundboards were next door neighboors in the same tree. The guitar is another iteration of the main model that I build and promote.
I carried this guitar with me on a trip to the Indiana Guitar Festival in Bloomington where I caught up with guitarist Matt Palmer, met Petar Jankovick, the teacher at Indian University and had the pleasure to see two recent customers - Erica Cha (guitar no. 6) and Kairy Wang (future owner of no. 12).
In addition, I had a great time hanging out with Dave of Reverie Guitars. Thanks!
