It looks like someone was a good boy this year.

Congratulations! I suppose Santa doesn't do photo narrations on some of his luthier jobs so as not to blow the surprise element for the good boys on his list ;-)

These are just so very nice. Wonderful to see someone put such artistry into instruments based on Ovation main components. Bravo!

I found this pearl of a guitar under my tree Christmas morning. Lucky me!

I've renamed it Black Pearl Parlor. Dan and I played together with his Black Pearl guitar. They sound great together. Sadly, no video/audio; you have to take our word for it.

It was fun modifying the 8117 shallow bowl guitar case to fit this guitar.

It didn't go exactly as we thought it would; it went better! I'm glad we took your advice and left the Custom Ultra's case alone.

Me, too.

I'm also glad we took our own advice and didn't attempt to install a new battery case in the Custom Ultra or the pick-up in your banjo.

Nothing like having a project go south on you in the middle of a nice, relaxing vacation.

Me, trois.

We also wisely left the Aspen AD-35 intact. Then again, there's nothing like a project going right at the end of a relaxing vacation ('Vette shock!).

We did replace the teeny-tiny strap buttons on the Aspen. Were we going to electrify it by adding a pre-amp?

Yes. That project (Vette shock) went better than I expected. Almost like we knew what we were doing.

We did replace the strap buttons. We talked about electrifying it, but we decided it would be better to leave it alone.

That's right. As I recall, I was sketchy about cutting into the Brazilian rosewood sides.

To be honest, once we started talking seriously about modding the Aspen, I got a bit sketchy too.
