I havent posted in quite a long time. A few years ago i got into making guitars and, well, that turned into a whole other obsession. i have continued building bows here and there and thought i would post my latest. 3piece take down with superaction wood riser and wedges, black glass limbs with ample and bloodwood accents. 60" 52# @ 30"

jeff i was wondering how that bow was doing. i have bows on both coasts and everwhere in between, but yours sticks out in memory. here are a couple guitars i made last christmas. i'll say this, guitar building really ups your attention to details. i think it has really improved my bowyer skills.

I use the martin long scale 25.4". I've got materials together for a heirloom type guitar for my self. really nice east indian rosewood and good tight grained Sitka sprure top. I really plan on making more bows and arrows this year so I will take it real slow.

Very cool looking guitars.... The bow ain't half bad either. :lol:

I've been wanting to drift into that luthier stuff a bit myself, but i got too many bows to build on order to take the time.

Good to see ya still kickin' bro.... Kirk

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...
