reso nameage

Hey there HMMC-

I have built one guitar, and do not by any means consider myself to be a Luthier, as many of you are.  I have a situation which has developed,  I've been asked by the friend who used my reso. on their CD what to put in the liner notes as "my company name".. the issue is, I do not have a company, nor do I intend to!

My friend implied they want to put something on there and suggested either using just my name, or he came up with

Diamondback Telecaster

I started on a few of these guitars this summer, and I thought I'd try my hand at another progress blog.

Another feature I'm putting on these that I don't see very often is a wood pickguard and control cover. The one in the picture is an African Mahogany body with…
