new blog

so i have a new blog now, for non-guitar-related stuff, like photography, ramblings and musings, and some of the more personal stuff that maybe some don’t want to read about here, which is quite ok, of course, as the internets are a big enough place for everything~

#1503 Barnstormer DC

DSCN6001

no, the picture is not backwards or upside down, this is indeed a left handed barnstormer with a “reverse” headstock; a custom order.
had to constantly check to make sure i had things the right (or rather left) way around while building this one.
body is solid chestnut barnwood, with a walnut neck and osage orange fretboard.
