Had enough of a free moment (rare) to laser etch and hang another shop sign that I had been putting off.

I needed something to take up the empty space at the bottom, so I went back and added my business phone.

I dig it and can't wait till it starts aging like the other one.


I've been working on a pretty sweet Loree AK with a synthetic top joint for my friends at TLU.

Normally, AK Loree's are a pretty common occurence here in the shop but this one seems extremely well built with excellent intonation.  Previous iterations of these that I've encountered over the years have ranged from 'so-so' to 'just OK'.

The response / biofeedback aspect on these top joints IS a little different as the plastic doesn't 'feel' like it's vibrating as much.  However, the sound is just as big and powerful as any Loree wooden joint.  If I had to describe it, I'd say it simply has a bit more resistance.  Sound coming from the bell is the same great Loree AK bore sound we're all used to.

The suction is amazing (and no cracks!) which is something we can all appreciate.   I do hope this is par the course for future Loree synthetic options -- they are sure doing a great job with these.

I dig this.  A lot, actually.   Super easy to play and super easy to work on with great key fit and voicing.
