    Congratulations to Darren, for winning Guitar of the Month for September 2010! It's not every day that one of our own members builds his own guitar from raw wood and parts, but that's exactly what Darren did.

    • Neck: 3-piece east Indian rosewood; scarf-jointed rosewood headstock (11° tilt)
    • Fretboard: east Indian rosewood, 27" scale; 24 medium-tall frets; 16" radius
    • Bridge: ABM Wilkinson-style fixed
    • Tuners: Sperzel Trim-Lok
    • Nut: Earvana Compensated Tuning System 48 mm shelf nut
    • Truss Rod: Stewart-MacDonald Hot Rod dual-expanding, wheel style, adjustment at heel
    • Neck Attachment: Connector bolts into threaded T-nuts under fretboard
    • Pickups: Nordstrand Custom
    • Electronics: Free-Way 6-way toggle; master volume; master tone; Neutrik locking output jack
    • Strap Locks: Schaller
    • Strings: Elixir, 10-56
    • Inlay: No face dots; side dots are Luminlay 3 mm luminescent dots
    • Finish: Hand-rubbed polymerized tung oil (body) and lemon oil (neck)


    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    Congrats Darren!
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
