6/30/14 - #10 - Front view, as it is today, with a lot of road miles, a lot of patches, but still my go to traveling guitar. Teak has a low co-efficient of thermal expansion, so it does make a more temperature stable guitar. I am hoping # 14 or #16 (built a little more stout, expressly for that DAEBF#D tuning) to be a replacement. I'll have to wait and see...

6/30/14 - #10 - Rear view, showing off that teak back, with a crack or two, and some Arizona mud. Kind of rough, but even with no neck reinforcement, this has been a great traveling guitar, it even fits in my Trader Joe's bag with my purse, and water, miscellaneous stuff.
