    Here is a selection of a few custom guitars I have built over the years. In total I’ve built close to 500 custom guitars since I began in 1974. We’ve rebuilt close to 1500 guitars in our guitar remanufacturing process. The black acoustic cutaway is a guitar I built for Carl Perkins in 1986! He loved that guitar and played until he passed away. Now one of his sons owns it. The giant guitar bar is what I built for the Dallas Hard Rock Cafe which led me into a position where I could build guitars for guys like Joe Walsh, Willie Nelson, Carl Parkins and James Burton.

    Very cool to see these images!
    You saved the best for last IMO, that little 12-fret acoustic is fine art.

    Beautiful stuff. And no doubt a lot of good stories to go with it. A lot to look back on and be proud of, that's for sure.
