Word From The Shop

This past weekend was another busy one here at Highline Handmade Electric Guitars. It started with the procurement of some very nice figured Maple. I scored a 8" wide, 1" thick, 112" long board loaded with intense flame figure from end-to-end and all the way through. I cut the board down to five 20" long boards, which I will re-saw into bookmatched drop tops. I also have a 12" piece that I'll use for headstock caps. I guess I'll be making at least 5 guitars this year for sure.

I also did quite a bit of work on the Highline Single Cut. In this photo, I've glued and clamped on the headstock cap, which was made from the same piece of spalted Maple as the body cap. I used 11 clamps!
