    Ben & Wes sure have access to great wood. Thank you for the photos George! Definitely above and beyond the call of duty, after a long night of driving!

    This is the style of shadetop I'm hoping for....the photo is a '38shade.jpg

    I just stopped by PW again on my way to the airport and a gentleman there showed Wes this exact photo and Wes replied "Someone else just emailed me that same photo!" That's too funny.

    Pure coincidence I'm sure George, but there is a very small sample size. Apparently only 27 or 28 shadetop 000 made in 1938. Wes told me he'd be shooting the finish this week... Hope you had a great visit

    I played one of the Pre War lefty guitars at Walter Carter's shop yesterday. I think it was level 3, mahogany. Very nice guitar. They also let me take their lefty '60 burst out of it's glass case and fondle it. Very cool, blister top. We stopped by Gruhn's too. I was surprised by the lack of guitars there. Carter probably has five times the inventory of Gruhn's.

    That was mine that I traded back to P*W for a Brazilian build. Great guitar! Didn't the neck feel awesome? It just has that old worn in feeling.
