Tuesday in the Workshop
Tuesday dawns cool, crisp and full of promise as we head into the tasks of the day. This is the time of year that many of us enjoy the most in New England, and the fall light streams into the shop with its flattering glow.
In the whitewood area of the shop, Tom is putting the final prep touches on a lovely quilt-topped Studio model. He's applied a light coat of Danish oil to help the adhesion of the first coats of nitro lacquer. This particular guitar has an ultimate-grade top and it's a sight to behold even before we get the clear coats on it. Somebody is going to be very happy with their purchase.
