I like to mix a martini and examine the results of the days work. This was last nights inspection
The French Polish is beginning to bring out the beauty of the spalted Maple on Timark's tenor.
I have reinforced this rather soft but beautiful back by sandwiching to it a thin layer of mahogany veneer.

Tonight I had the great pleasure of playing these two just strung up tenors built for Andreas in Kiel and Klaus in Hamburg. I love both of them. Tomorrow they will get their pickups installed and they will be ready to ship to Germany.
