Building the Keith Urban Honey Dripper Guitar

Final photo

One more Honey Dripper about to be released into the wild! This baby will be tamed and ridden hard by Keith Urban!!!

I rough cut a nice slab of African Mahogany and marked for the neck pocket and pickup & control cavities.
Stay tuned!

Proud of you Ted, I want to see Keith play it on stage.

Shop's open again after shutting down and dismantling benches and stations for almost 3 weeks while the three stooges construction company finished the renovations for last Thursday and Friday's inspections!!!

I got caught up on pickup orders and back to work on 5, no 6 guitars on nice clean benches. Today I routed 3 neck pockets, here's the one you want to see:


Keith, I also routed the pickup and control cavity and made the bridge base and control cover from lacewood. She's gonna be sweet, worth the wait.

Err, Mr Urban - 856 404 0411... I have a sweet little cigar box reso guitar with your name on it but need an address...

Wow, looks like I forgot to update this. Honey Dripper has been finished for a while but with Keith being on tour it just shipped this morning. In the meantime I built a surprise CBG tuna can reso for Keith and included it in the case.



Surprise Keith, here's the Alley Cat



Keith, I'd love to see your face when you open the case and try to decide what to pick up first


Have fun, hope you're inspired and let's see some vids!

Another video of Keith Urban playing his Crocker Honey Dripper guitar - looks like the same show but from a different camera in the crowd
