The Hummingbird gets an update

Tue, Mar 15, 11


Since the Hummingbird has become my main player as of late, I decided it was time to spruce it up.  40 years with little upkeep had taken its toll.  I  did the fret job on my faux-Martin myself, but decided to enlist a professional on this one.  I took it to a Luthier in Woodstock, GA. who runs a shop out of the basement of his home.  What a great aesthetic.  Tools everywhere, the place overflowing with unfinished guitars, and the delicate scent of a sawdust and cigarette potpourri.  In short, awesome.  Here are a few pics I snapped while there.
