Beautiful, much needed rain this morning
with a gray sky
welcoming in the color blue.
A long, productive rehearsal for the show
And love, every where...
In every form.

Yeah. . . the patron loves it. Here's a shot of the top. It's cedar. Paired with that Braz, it's going to have a warm, full sound, that's for sure!

Is the metal thingy in the sound hole a pick up ?

Beautiful guitar !

Beautiful guitar !

Drool worthy, huh Jim??

(Well, I am drooling... and I don't believe it is age related.)

Yes. I just sent Blanchard an E asking what's up with it. . . it appears to just be a mic. . . we'll see what he says.

At first I was thinking you meant the inlay of Paua abalone in the rosette. . . duh.

Thanks Kath about the rosette. I just can't figure out the black and silver "rod" thing behind the strings in center of the sound hole. What is it ?

EDIT : I'm interested in the answer as well.

Yeah. . . here's the scoop on that pick-up:

K & K Trinity. It's the usual K &K setup plus a mic. The two signals go out of the guitar to an outboard preamp where they are blended into a mono signal that goes to the amp.

It's what the customer wanted.

Girl, you know I will!!! I wouldn't be surprised if he wanted a Blanchard Guitar, and makes it happen.


I get to pick up THIS old school beauty tomorrow...
