#1306 Mississippi Road Dog

This is the third Road Dog I have done with this green painted bead board that came from the sliding doors from the old Watertown railroad freight station.
I sawed the boards in half, and laminated the top 1/4″ of the green side onto a sassafras back.
Neck is red maple, with persimmon fretboard.
This one is headed across the pond to a delta blues enthusiast in England.

    Stephen~ Glad to hear it!

    Lee~ This one is sold, as it was a custom commission.
    I will be making some similar ones for sale through Rebel Guitars
    Price will be $2250 including case.
    The Road Dogs I build for Rebel usually have Alabama “Heart of Dixie” license plates, but I can do others as well, as long as I feel they fit the guitar well.

    Hi george

    The guitar arrived this morning and its a beauty! It looks and plays like a dream. As far as maintainance and cleaning goes … Are there any do’s and don’ts? Not sure what the finish is on the body? Is normal guitar polish ok? What about the fretboard?
    Thanks
    Stephen

    Hi Stephen,
    Glad to hear it
    I use a flat waterborne varnish, and it is very low gloss, so really no point in polishing; just wipe it down with a clean rag.
