All this H-357 talk has takes me back

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've had more than my fair share of a bottle of Cabo Wabo this evening so please indulge me. I've posted these photos before with commentary, but tonight I will probably just post the shots and add the commentary later. The (sort of) illustrated history of my H-357.

 

The brain trust discussing the possibilities.

My star inlays. They represent my three boys, my last name translates to star.

The sample of korina orange that Marv FedEx'd to me to see if it was the right color.

This shot was from a local Kalamazoo paper/magazine while Marv was making Bolero's and my 357. The one Marv is sanding is Chris' the one on the bench is mine. I could tell because mine didn't have the fret board installed. Marv was still "waiting on those boys from Kentucky" to finish the custom inlay.

I remember that build as it went along. It was always fun arm wrestling with Marv on builds!

My favorite parts about this thread are the inclusion of your sons on the trip, and the meaning behind the star inlays.
