That's an incredible set of guitars. Artistically sound concept and well executed. Really well done by all concerned! Terry and crew delivered a very nice trio, and I love the thought and passion that went into it as a project. I've been quietly wondering what you've been up to... And here it is. Well, you have amazed me, sir. Well thought out, and very well executed, Terry.

Mark,

They are all three in a satin finish.

Hey, Chris

I noted that, but I think it's the photo - the headstock looks more cedar-like in tone, while the body almost looks stained, and it's darker and wider grained than any cedar wood guitar I've seen. Still, it's my favorite of the three.

Both pieces are the Natural finish, e.g. clear. The peghead veneer is more uniform in color and a tad lighter than most of the body. The body is a tight, straight grain, though, just like on my cedar Bronze, but has the gradations in tone streaked through it. Also, most of it is darker than my Bronze: the overall darkness of the body is darker toward the upper side and quite light - lighter than the peghead veneer - toward the edge of the lower side of the lower bout.

What I had in mind when I spec'd the order was the wood on my Bronze, but I didn't think to be specific. Still, I'm happy with what they chose: the streaking adds some interest where a broad expanse of satin-finished light wood may have been a bit plain. (But then how do I explain how good the spruce turned out?!?)

Great pics Marco76, thanks a lot!
Could you post some close-ups of Odin's and Thor's wood grains too?
Should prove most interesting.

Greetings...

Thanks for the kind comments. Yeah, I saw Bill's satin mahogany here a couple years ago, and it really made an impression on me. I'll get some grain-close-up shots up here for you before long.

For Nefarius, here are some close-ups of the wood grain on Thor (Mojo):





(I had originally thought that the peghead was displaying the neck stock, which is also mahogany. I have been told by the shop  that this, too, is an overlay. Apparently, the encapsulation of the peghead in the glass/carbon layers is necessary for all of the other joints in that area to fit well.)

Do these all get fairly equal play time?

If not, please send me the loneliest one. I promise to give it oodles of attention.
