The guitar arrived safely at Sheepkeeper (Richard). He's planning to be there on the 3rd. Thanks for doing this Richard and saving a pile of shipping $.    

Some info on the guitar.  The Osage Orange back and side wood was provided (or rather donated) by hackbarry Jake.  The top is Englemann Spruce, the neck is a Mahogany neck directly from Martin guitars.  The rosette, fingerboard, and bridge is rosewood, and the binding is Walnut.  Finish is Tru-oil and the tuning machines are Gotoh.  It's a Dreadnought with Martin style D28 bracing and is very lightly built.   The top is around .108" in thickness and the back about .065".  With Osage being a heavy wood, it weights a touch over 4 pounds.

There is a hardshell case included and a Boveda humidifier.  I did send along a clear pick guard, the only one I had laying around.  Whoever wins this can stick it on, or get a dark one if they so choose.

And again, I have to say the finishing job isn't up to par for a custom guitar.  I would have needed another 2 weeks, but hey, it isn't too shabby.  

Someone will get a great sounding guitar and a case for a measly 10 bucks.  Good luck everyone.

95 now.  :)

I'm really looking forward to trying to play the guitar the brief time it will be here. Who knows, someone at the pigroast may take it home with them. Many of the chances right now belong to people that have plans on attending.

OK so I made a donation,  but with the problems I have with being musically challenged,  should I win auction it off to the highest bidder at the Pig Roast and give the money back to the Forum.  Literally I have issues with the OH IN / OH EFF EFF switch on the radio.  Enjoy the Pig Roast.  JR
If you are enjoying what you are doing,  is it still work?

Clarification, you do NOT have to be at the pigroast to be in the draw, but if you are back in Canada, we have found the shipping is pretty extreme.

As Guitarkeeper for the near future I have to say that it is a beautiful guitar and sounds good too! I haven't played in years but couldn't resist tuning it up and strumming a little. The brain remembered some, the fingers not so much  :D. Someone will get some real enjoyment from this well crafted instrument. 

p.s. the pictures really don't do it justice.

This Fall?  That is so you can keep it awhile and play it :D :D.

Of course, it is already Fall in Michigan, but the summer is just getting started in Georgia :).
