Del Gesu Porn

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the PDF and eye porn it is. However... does anyone know why complete photos of the neck and fingerboard would be excluded from the 160+ photos? There are some fragments, but no full mid neck shots that I can see. Curious...

Presumably because they aren't part of the original instrument and are therefore of limited interest?

As I noted in the other thread on this topic, I haven't been here much lately.

But I do want to take the opportunity to say a couple of things.

1. (and most importantly), this is a remarkable effort with remarkable results.

2. Jordan and Christian have been working together for some time and the resulting synergy shows.

3. Jordan is a remarkably talented guy -- a savant in my view.  I am glad to know him pretty well.  That said, if he weren't quite that talented, I would say so.  Being my friend does not give you a pass on my being honest about you when asked as long as it is something I have told you about yourself.  Maybe that's why I have so few friends.  :lol:

4. I have immense respect for the leading lights of our trade who have earned that designation by word and/or deed.  Excepted: where folks self-designate and that designation is unwarranted.

5. Neither ageism (in either direction) nor time-in-the-trade-ism has a place in our business or any other, in my view.  Young and old all have something of value to contribute.  Experienced and inexperienced have the same.  Often the latter can come to the table with a way of looking at things that is new or old but forgotten that benefits the former.  And questions are not the province of the experienced.  As we gain more experience, if we are not continuing to ask questions and challenge assumptions, what does that experience really mean?  We can churn out instruments like machines -- though not machines without talent.  But if we are not taking in new information, even seeking it out, from whatever source and about whatever aspect of life, this mortal coil becomes exceedingly boring.  Which may actually be a better reason for departing it than those cited in literature.

End of rant from an older, less experienced in making fellow.

I just ordered my copy. It looks fantastic, and the photo job is excellent. I'm glad he did it. While I was there, I looked at all of his own work. It's stellar . . . Obviously he's paying attention to what he's seeing.
