Eric from Willcutt's was at the Wood Library today, I was supposed to join but couldn't due to being busy with work. Alan/yankeebulldog was there as well.

My Aquamarine DC 245 was there, pretty much finished! Crappy cell phone pic:

I had Paul M lighten the standard Aquamarine up a bit to make sure it wasn't too dark, and to pop the contrast a bit on the quilt, it turned out GREAT!!

Alan and Eric said it looks absolutely killer in real life.

(I love Maple that Maple Binding!)

Wow, I have two fantastic PS 245's incoming!!

Great looking piece, Pete! Nice color choice. Figured mahogany neck?

That grey HB with the quilted top and fiddle sides on the rack looks interesting, too.

Absolutely beautiful, Pete!

Yeah, it looks like an McCarty Archtop with extra thickness.
