Hey,

For all those who are worried that they don't see any pictures of the Hog Top guitars...

This photo looks like a Hog Top.  You can tell the difference between the Italian Spruce and the Hog because the Hog looks a little pink in colour vs. the IS which is a little yellowish.  I'm sure they are in the production process.  There just isn't too many photos of the Hog versions.  Maybe we will see some more Hog photos tomorrow.

Hi all-  If you haven't seen it I'm putting together a map of FIII homes, see "Forum III Guitar Map of Buyers" post.  Please reply with city and git number (and type, so I don't have to look it up on the list).

Thanks

i think the range of color is interesting...


Which one do you prefer? The ore more solid/darker or streaky with lighter stripes?




549 near the bottom is mine, and i think the one below 543 could well be Lynda's, as it ends in a 4 (which i think makes it a 1 in 3 chance it is 544, plus it is next to 543)

Ben,

We think alike. I was thinking the same thing, but obviously won't know for sure until I get a clear look at the full number. I was OK with the waiting for this, but now that some of us know our numbers (sorry to those of you that don't yet) and we're seeing pics, it's getting REALLY hard.

I was gonna make a comment that they could be putting the abalone in the rosette instead of the herringbone, but I thought not.

where are you going?

Nowhere, but I'm two songs behind in my homework so after I drop the kid off, in about 15 minutes, the PC goes off. Except to obsessively check the progress of my Bubinga,lol.

Holly- I think those are just spacers to keep the area open for the herringbone inlay. To the abalone idea, those of us that ordered HD purfling wouldn't want abalone in the rosette. Wouldn't really match well. Just my opinion. Abalone rosette with abalone purfling matches, but I think that's too much bling. We all wanted a low bling guitar; that was my understanding. The HB gives it kinda a vintage look, along with the satin finish. Hope it's not for abalone !

As of today all Forum III guitars have been started. Rosewood guitars are at the forefront carving the path for the South American mahogany. Components for these guitars are moving along and will be ready as the guitars progress. Mahogany tops will be rosetted in the next few days. Be patient with photo's and lists. All good things in all good time.

It reads like that.  And who could blame him after reading this thread?
