A new client build. Here's a photoshopped idea for a general shape. I'm going for a hot rod, chevy tail fin vibe. The wood in this idea shot is 2 pieces of African Black Walnut with a racing stripe down the center made of Bloodwood/Maple/Bloodwood, just laying next to each other - no glue. Nothing is definite yet but the wheels are turning...

Hey Ted, I have a tail piece I think you might be interested in. I'll send you a personal message with a pic of what I have in mind for you, I think it might compliment this build nicely.

Robbie, how often do you play this?  Have a new vid for us??

Inspiring to say the very least.  I hear the "time" going in the bin over this one Ted.  A quality aming point for me. Thankyou for sharing.

Robbie gifted the Hot Rod to his friend Ron Zabrocki, and Ron filmed an awesome video demo.

One of your best builds I think Ted, nice demo video too. What have you been up to lately?

I miss making insane creations like this - who wants to order one!!!   A ton of great build tips here.  Check the last page for the awesome video demo.

You gotta admit, this is a seriously sexy 14 piece of wood body - even before it became an incredible playing instrument!  Right?
