So as you might have noticed, I haven't been uploading stuff here for a while. And that’s because I've been working on this beast, and I didn't want to post pictures of it because I didn't know how it was going to turn out. But now it's done! And it sound amazing, looks really cool and plays like a dream. And most importantly client is happy. This has most certainly been the most mentally exhausting thing I've ever built, it has been a real struggle all the way through, and I wouldn't been able to finish it without all the support I got. So I want to send out a HUGE thank you to mr @magnusramelinlay , for all the help. First of all he made all the fantastic inlays on the neck and headstock. And after I dropped the guitar, he saw my instagram post, and offered to piece the thing together again, and so he did. And he made a fantastic job, it came out so great, even if you know that the guitar was in pieces at one point, and knew where the cracks where you couldn't find them. He made them go away. So thank you sososo much for saving my ass on this one! So now this is all finished and delivered, and i'm so stoked to get back in the workshop and start to do some actual building again!!🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮 #guitar #customguitars #acousticguitar #acoustic #whatsonyourbench #luthier #lutherie

So this is now the nearly finished gitarr. Not so close anymore. My handle that was mounted to the guitar while finishing, must have cracked so today when I picked it up the bolt just came loose and the guitar took a 1,5 m fall onto a concrete floor. So now this lovely guitar, that was going to be a really huge opportunity for me to get a little better known as a builder. Beacuse the kind sir that I was building this guitar for, is having a big show this winter where he was going to play this guitar. Now im not sure whats going to happend if I will get another chance to build him another guitar, or if im done. Becuse even if I would be able to fix it I dont want to hand him a new guitar thats suposed to be perfect. When it's really held together with a ton of superglue and pure rage. And did mention that today is my 20:th birthday *yeeey* happy birthday me
