Guitar Noir

I've been taking some pictures of the process of building the guitar I will soon be shipping to GSI and I've gotten good comments about my pictures from the people there.  In them I used a film noir lighting with a lot of shadows.  In one of them you see a mysterious gloved hand about to pad the guitar with shellac.  Building guitars is very methodical but sometimes you can have fun taking pictures of it.

I had the privilege of playing this guitar before it was shipped out. It was absolutely fabulous. Loud, fast, fat ... everything a great classical should be and it had only been strung up for a few days. After playing it, I ordered one from Luis on the spot.
