    I'm drooling. Just out of curiosity, what's the price of something like this when it's not for charity?

    I like everything but the bulbous design....don't ever see myself spending that kind of coin on a shape like that. To each his own I suppose.

    I was recently lucky enough to have ALL-Dunn Productions film in my shop. I thought I would share with you what they created for me.

    Here is a brand new Lefty guitar I just finished for Stephen Crossman. Stephen came to me with this idea for a NH theme guitar with the state inlay and the old man on the mountain headstock profile. I had a great time building this and to be honest I am quite proud of the results. Live Free or Die.
