Congratulations. Now you need to obtain two more Traphagens with hybrid double top (cedar and spruce), one with spruce on the outside, and the other with cedar. :wink:
Perhaps I can grow some more hands as well :cry:
Just a little humor. I meant no disrespect. It is nice to have options readily available, and you definitely have earned it.

I took no offense at all. I've never been able to go back and forth between cedar and spruce so I've always just owned one guitar at a time. I'll be selling the cedar pretty soon.

Nice guitar and congratulations on retiring. I am planning to retire next year and get more into playing as well. Enjoy your new guitar, she looks like a beauty.

Beautiful guitar. Congratulations! When I was a guitar student at Bellingham (WWU) in the 1970s Dake used to come to our masterclasses to show off his guitars. I really wanted one but needed to get a real job to pay for it. Glad he's still building and making great instruments.

I bought my first Traphagen in 1980, but didn't actually make it to Bellingham until some years later. I loved the short time I spent there.
