Frank's Guitars: Jawa and Huckleberry Hound
Frank had to deliver these before he could show them at the meeting. As Frank tells it:
Jawa goes to my son in-law, Viar - Made of Norwegian Maple with Walnut body. Rosewood Fretboard and Bridge. Bone Nut/ Saddle. Shell inlays. Ebony Pins.
Huckleberry Hound goes to the tree service guy we know who hooks us up with all the cool logs we slice up. His is made of Ambrosia Maple. Walnut Fretboard but I opt for Rosewood on the bridge. I dont mind Walnut bridge on my dulcimer guitars but a six string? I have to think about it. Bone Nut/ Saddle. Shell inlays. Ebony Pins
