I learned the other day that two Martins I've ordered are getting close to being finished! They should both arrive within a few weeks of each other, probably early-mid November!

I ordered a custom shop J-18 and then a Standard Series J-40 - so both are the same body style; the 18 is hog and the 40 is rosewood.

They sent me a couple pics of the J-18, which is waiting to have its bridge glued on, then go to final set up. Then they let them set for a few days under string tension and do the final set up on them.

Gas is increasing; concentration is shot!

That is some gorgeous looking mahogany on that J-18.   You are going to love these I think.
