hmmm?

Love it-the darker is deeper toned I thought

Jupitar for me, however I was too dazzled by your playing to hear a distinctive differentiation. So, I would avoid drowning, pick one and be happy.

Both are great sounding guitars. You have really nailed the voicing on both. They sustain forever!

The thing that really shines through is your passion for creating beautiful guitars both in sound and appearance.

awesome

They both sound fantastic. I love their sustain!!!!

Man I hate it when ever I open FB and there you are with a vid and It starts playing and I go panic mode looking for my earbuds going Ooo Ooo trying to locate them like I’m gunna miss the vid lol Both sound great . Sinkajun is a has warmer sound but also something else I can’t put my ears on but we know they will both get much sweeter with age and play time . 😁

WOW!! Both are compelling. I hear characteristics in each that speak to me. Both are gorgeous guitars. Nice work Ben. You ROCK ;)

Another show I am very much looking forward to participating in! Thanks for having me guys!The 'Lion' by exhibitor Ben Wilborn
Wilborn Guitars - Reno, Nevada

Ben's focus as a builder is on his own unique designs, which he has created as a response to his desires as a musician, and his knowledge as a craftsman. Ben's guitars are sleek and modern and employ all of his hard won techniques and secrets for voicing and responsiveness, but they are not strange. In your hands they feel timeless and alive, and in your ears, they create all those sounds that you always imagined a guitar should produce: warmth, harmonic sophistication, intensity and articulation. As a guitarist himself, Ben puts particular emphasis on the way they feel and perform. Wilborn guitars are built by a player, for players.

Absolutely beautiful Guys lovely song and one awesome set of guitars.

That was quite nice fellas. I think I recognize a guitar laying on the bench as the Jupitar and if not mistaken the beginnings of the Cinnamon Girl is in a form on the back bench????

That’s the one I really need with the double bevel

Awesome guys!

Encore! Encore!

Sweet.

I really like this song, it sounds very comfortable。

Shades of Seals and Crofts! Some vocals would be apropos. So, when are you going hit the circuit?

Just sayin'

Will you build an acoustic bass so I can join you? 🙂

Nice!

Beautiful composition… Great job guys!!!

I’ve got it! So here is this new EllieBelle, just released from her mold, and nicely sanded out. What is her name? Well, she’s made of Honduran rosewood, with this beautiful cinnamon hue, and when you sand it, it smells just like cinnamon. The best smelling wood! Therefore her name must The Cinnamon Girl. What else? ... See MoreSee Less

“I want to live With a cinnamon girl I could be happy The rest of my life With a cinnamon girl”

I was wondering when a name would come to her!

Hi Ben, I’ve used Honduran rosewood for fingerboards and bridges before. The stuff was incredibly hard. How do you like it for backs and sides?

Wow that is nice ;)
