Great to hear this out in the world, the guitar and player sounds just beautiful!

Nice to hear one being finger-picked (even if it's just a few notes)!

Kudos, Ben!

Sounds AMAZING Ben!

Nice review

"A really, really joyful instrument to play!" Yes yes yes!

Ben, you are awesome, I could listen to you all night and the guitar is another masterpiece

Beautiful!

Amazing craftsmanship

What is TNAG?

Beautiful look and sound

What was that pick you're using? Out of additional curiosity: why don't you make your own picks from left-over (hard)wood? I rarely use a pick but got me an ebony one recently. Its sound compared to that of a common plasticky one is like fingerpicking with flesh only compare to using nails only (except it's louder).

You're killin' me here, Ben. Another magnificent creation that looks oh so familiar. Beautiful in every way.

*long, slow whistle*

AWWW Maaan...What a beauty.

Quanto è in prezzo 👍

Wow

You just wanted to show off that your shorts match your new cases, lol.

"Micro bevel"!! How cool!!

So beautiful!

I just received this really lovely EIR from Rahoul Waghmare in India. He’s sent me some really great wood over the years- stuff it’s quite hard to find domestically. It’s always fairly priced, and quickly shipped. Anyone want a very unique rosewood guitar? ... See MoreSee Less

I shared this image, but a number of good luthiers saw it and wondered how those sides will work out. I hope you post a progress update at some point. The bending looks challenging.

Beautiful but I would flip the body mold to make the grain run in the opposite direction. I always think of the points towards headstock. But what do I know, your guitars are always amazing. I thought it was walnut, lol

That will be amazing. The grain already looks deep even without veneer.

Now that is some crazy wood right there! One of a kind (well at least two of a kind)

Does Rahoul has a shop online?

I’ll take one...

Sir is pleased?

Thanks sir for uploading the pics

Everybody wants one!

Wow…wavy gravy!

amazing.

Sweet

Cool!!

Superb. Figure like a Bridget Riley painting.

That’s a beauty!

Say you want your Wilborn in a Calton case so that you may fling it down the stairs with impunity. Well, I can accommodate you. I just love this color. It’s strangely familiar. ... See MoreSee Less

Here is the BIG Nautilus. Woodwork is complete, and it’s time for lacquer. This will be available at Tom Bowersox’s BIG guitar festival in Texas in September. Old quartersawn BRW and German spruce. Judging from the epic “BONGGGGG” it emits when tapped, it will have a huge voice. ... See MoreSee Less

Very nice! Can’t wait to see all that wood pop after the lacquer

Gorgeous! Cant wait to try one of these nautili! Someday 🤞

Beautiful, Ben!

A beauty!!

So chocolatey!

I will finally be able to try one of those! Looking forward to it 🙃

BIG as in barytone?
