Phenomenal Austin Guitarist, Lance Keltner, recently shot a demo video of one of my new P-1SVs, here's the link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qshKAepmb70 , you've got to check it out! He also recorded some killer sound clips that I will be adding to my player ASAP. The guitar, #028, was the first to be offered up for sale by newest representative, Destroy all Guitars. The guitar sold within one day of arriving there... Great job Cliff!
We just posted shots of three new guitars I just finished. P-1 #014 is a study in understated beauty, in my opinion. It has a stunningly beautiful Maple top and Black Limba back, finished in satin lacquer, and sports Haussel pickups with Ebony covers. Numbers 033 and 034 are two pieces I did in collaboration with famed NYC based artist John "Crash" Matos. Both are going on exhibition at The Showroon NYC, from 10/25-11-9. Check 'em out!!!!
I just updated my "Functional Art" column at Modern Guitars magazine, with the "Building Number One" series. This installment is the second half of the body building, up to and including paint. To check it out, Click Here! Most of the first batch is now in paint, so they're moving forward. I've always likened the building process to human gestation, it's better not to rush it, and it's going to take at least nine months from start to finish. Yeah, I know, I'm a bit overdue. Don't forget to check out the Guitar Buyer article link on the lower left...it's a nice read!
I've been buried! I guess that's a good thing, eh? I've just added a couple more pics to the Gallery. P-1 #017 is an absolutely stunning example of how killer a piece of wood can look. It is one of the oddest figure formations I have ever seen. I've also just completed the first prototype of my newest model, the DL, named after my muse for life and wife, Dana Leigh. It's a double cutaway, 3 P-90, hardtail shredder! Available to order starting mid October. Check 'em both out on the Gallery pages! Cheers!
Well the additions have begun! There are new photos in the Gallery of a few guitars that I just finished up. Check out 013, it's a righty-lefty hybrid that just looks amazing in Translucent Fiesta Red with Ivoroid binding and a cream Moto pickguard. Thanks John Q. for your patience and support! Also, there are now Sound Files up in the Products area. Many thanks to Glenn Webster, (owner of The Celt and our first official Artist Endorser), for recording these clips for me.
