chirp... chirp...


Why not start the new year with a little bragging? I'm sure I've mentioned that my better half (Mike Sankey) is a luthier (guitar builder), and so, I wanted to share with you his latest (and my personal favorite) creation. I love the bird sound-holes and it's smooth arched back. Oh, oh, oh... and it sounds great!
Awesome work Mr. Mike:)

Eric... thanks for the link!
He's not listed yet, but I'm sure he'll be soon:)

Charisa, that was a custom order. Paid for and shipped off already. Sad:( I wanted to keep it around for a bit longer.
