At the photo studio of Jeff Ross getting some glamorous shots of the Black Lion. We are using a vacuum clamp of my own design to hold the guitar at any angle we decide to shoot. ... See MoreSee Less

Well that is pretty danged cool!

Thanks for sharing, your jigs are brilliant.

That's faith in action. Those vac clamps are cool but always scare me a bit, especially when the whole finished guitar is hanging out in space like that.

Not just a pretty face then Mr. Wilborn!!

Cool

Fantastic boys! When is the next Toad and Frog CD coming out?

Fabulous!

You're killing me.

What a gorgeous arrangement guys...and both those guitars sound like a million buck$😋😋

Superb! 👏

Nicely done and both guitars sound fantastic!

Loved it, very haunting arrangement of that song! That little Lion holds it own quite well against that big boy. I particularly like the treatment on the top, which I believe should now be listed as an option known as the Bowertop...

Holy shit! Wow! Thanks for that! Such a great arrangement. Played wonderfully. The sounds of those beautiful instruments....just... outstanding... Makes you fall in love with music all over again.

Wow cuz! I don’t like it when any Beatle song is redone. I’m more then impressed, sounds amazing!!!

Nicely done.

I wish you guys knew how to play guitar. Haha ❤️ Love it.

Gorgeous! Mahalo for sharing!💜

Nathan Grant jam

Excellent rendition BEN you guys killed it!!!

How very beautiful, gentlemen. Thanks for sharing the results of your hard work with us . . .

Wow that was awesome 👏 thank you for sharing

Outstanding!

Beautifully done. I’ll have to share this with James, as Eleanor Rigby is one of his favorite songs.

Very nice guys...great job.

Absolutely gorgeous! And I'm NOT talking about Ben's legs ha!

Wonderful, thank you.

Great playing and Lovley TONE on these boss Wilburn guitars!!!

Here’s what’s cooking: a Lion, featuring succulent Cuban Mahogany over a bed of 50 year old, aged Sitka Spruce, and a crisp Bantam of rich quarter sawn Cocobolo plated on a chilled platter of Western Red Spruce. Both entrees are served with a Paua abalone rosette. Bon Appétit!

I just got these special order tuners from Japarts. Gotoh 510s are such smooth tuners, but so big and heavy! Well, these are the Mini 510 (in gold) and the new offering, the SGi510, or super mini in satin chrome. I am excited about these super minis for my Bantam guitar! ... See MoreSee Less

Cool! Do you happen to know the weight on those super-minis?

I don’t care for the small buttons, and I also prefer the 21:1 ratio...but I understand why you might like the minis!

I heard somewhere that using the plastic/Ebonoid buttons helps cut the weight pretty significantly. I like the feel of wood buttons tho 🙂

Beautiful

What is the ratio on the new minis? And I prefer the wood or resin buttons. Much lighter and pretty too. Feel good on your fingers...

I’m thoroughly convinced that heavier tuners would add to sustain in a positive way. No?

When are they coming out with the Super Extra Miniscule Mini?
