    Some pics on the staining process. Putting a full video together soon. Beginning stain is Brown (although it looks Black). Sand it off as much as the thin veneer would allow. Then Yellow base, and Orange on edge. Let dry, build up some more. Will sand it one more time and then repeat Yellow and Orange, so not quite done yet.

    @Curtis I flew once and it was to Nashville Guitar Gathering. be 100% ready to put it in the luggage hold.. that means you should be using a hard case not a gig bag if you want it in one piece. tune the guitar down 1 whole step before heading to the airport. now you have a hard case, a carry on bag, a suite case, guitar(s), amps, etc. how do you carry all that and airlines charge per pound for extra. so yes acoustic is probably going to be your only choice if flying as all the gear costs$$. I found this company http://www.backaxe.com/ it adds straps to your hard case so you can carry it like a gig bag and still have hands free for carry on and suite case. the way down I was on 1 plane, my case was 2" too thick for the overhead (using a Godin TRIC foam case so they're a lot thicker). so the flight attendant headed to the luggage guy at the door. on the other end the luggage guy said he loved my case. on the way back we had a layover, the plane was just a bit bigger and the guitar fit in overhead, and I finally lucked out and got an overhead that was in like row B not where I always am in row ZZ. the security guys x-ray the case to see what's inside. overall I had a pretty good experience flying with a guitar.. if you wanted a 2nd guitar (electric), amp, etc. you'll be paying for the poundage and you'll need to figure out how to carry it all with only 2 hands, as the person you're flying with will probably have their hands full too and no room to carry your guitar.

    Gear question for Robben; I ve noticed Robben playing several different styles / types / makes of guitars, from Tele's , Les Paul's to ES335's etc.. Does he have a favorite for blues / jazz or does he choose according to the sound he wants to get for a particular song?

    - there an easy way to transition from single note runs to chords and back to single notes as so often found in blues songs without making them seem choppy transitioning?. -steve has talked about this before, but, What's your take to make pentatonic scales sound more musical then just running up or down a couple of notes at a time? (Guess I'm talking rhythmic here) and adding the "blue note" to them?

    @Triple-o I've purchased two guitars and sold one on Reverb without any problems. I contact/message the seller about things not listed to get a feel of the seller based on their response. I always keep the adage; if it's too good to be true, it probably is. Good luck in your search, Bryan

    @Triple-o, I have only purchased one guitar on Reverb but I have also sold two on it. I've also purchased a few smaller items. All transactions without incident.

    Let’s not forget having a quality guitar and having it set up properly. Gravity and barre chords, well let’s just say, I ‘am from Missouri.
