Real head turner of a build!

Ohhhh.   Ahhh..   I would have to convert that to a four and then play the heck out of it.  Fantastic.   Great in every visual way to my old eyes.

What an amazing build Ron! That is a standout guitar!

Congratulations on your retirement. You can always become a 1-finger guitarslinger; armed just two strumming patterns you can do a lot of musical damage. You are always welcome to Zoom with the Slingers and hone your chops.

I used to have trouble letting them go, but my attitude has changed. Now as soon as I build one, I want to make the next one. I am retiring from my day job next week and I know I will be building more, so I have been thinning them out. Sold 14 in the past few months. I I am such a poor player I would prefer to see them in the hands of people who can get some good tunes out of them.

Super kool Ron!!! I couldn’t let that one go, it would have to stay in my collection for sure!!!

Blind Hog's latest build going into the Antiques and Artisan Plaza in Williamstown, Ky. This is probably the biggest guitar I have built. We have named it the "Ratso Reso". The resonator is a 9" steel dog bowl, it has a red oak and bamboo neck, with chrome enclosed tuners and piezo pick up. It has a lot of sound and plugged into the amp, she rocks. It you want an instrument that stands out, this is the one for you.
