My Gibsons. (They don't smell of vanilla or playdoh, they smell of shame and fear!) And no, I didn't put that nasty metal scratchplate on the V, it is now just a bad memory...

My brother (Mark) builds guitars.



A recently finished instrument:





Mark has built beautiful things all his life: furniture, RC models, kayaks, etc, etc. He has also played guitars all his life, I suppose building guitars was inevitable. Pretty much anything he has ever built has looked "right," but the guitars take it to a whole new level. The two loves of his life joined up into something new.

Mark has begun a second career building guitars, I suspect he is going to do quite well.

Not only does he build a beautiful guitar, but he has a disgustingly clean shop.

Is there a website for his guitars?

A build thread on the guitar in the pics above: prepare to lose a few hours. Really cool process...

Anyone know anything about Alvarez Guitars? I browsed through a shop yesterday and an old Alverez dreadnought style flat top caught my eye; model 5053. All I could find using google was it was "1970's". Really sweet sounding guitar. I know they weren't high end, but I did like the sound and feel. A little beat up; might make a good traveler.

I really don't need another flat top. Hopefully someone will buy it before I get there again.

I was surprised by this place; great little shop in the middle of nowhere. If you're ever in Gunnison, CO...
