The Beetle Kill Electric (lower pictures) has had some progress: The body has been rough-carved and the neck is in its early stages. Can't wait to begin some inlay work. Another body has been started as well. This one has an African Mahogany top on a base of Butternut wood. The bindings are black and white. This should contrast well in the end.

Brainchild is going to jam here in Denver. Come one come all for a shredfest. I can't wait to see Roy rippin' his Marshwood.

I had a great time instructing a beginning level, electric guitar building course this semester at Red Rocks Community College. The students worked hard and should be proud of their accomplishments.

Beetle Kill Electric

This is a cool electric top that is from Colorado. The ponderosa pine trees along the Front Range have had it pretty rough due to an increased population of Mountain Pine Beetle. The beetles kill the tree but leave a cool blue stain to the wood. I found a piece which book-matched nicely. This guitar will one day be finished in blue lacquer to work with this natural color. Walnut has been used for the base of the body.

Time: 4.5 hrs.

The sound track for this short film was recorded with the new Marshwood prototype (for pictures see below). I was looking to do something with this footage. Fishing is my other obsession. Wear headphones if you have them.

New Prototype from Marshwood!

This is a prototype which has passed the test and will eventually become one of the standards offered by Marshwood. The woods used in construction: Quarter-sawn flame maple drop top on a base of alder, Honduran mahogany for the neck, and a rosewood headplate and fretboard. The two Seymour Duncan Phatcats sound real nice like.

New Project

This electric is going to be based off Roy's model with some differences of course. Alder and walnut are woods for the body. Maple for the neck. I will keep you posted.
