Assembly and setup: - SF Guitarworks in San Francisco, California Special thanks to the crew at SF Guitarworks for the fine service and consultation throughout this entire project, from the initial discussion of envisoned details with Geoff, to the planning and management by Monique, and the spot-on execution of every detail by Tomm, including a tedious enhancement to positioning of the string nut. The Honeylamb actually came home from SF Guitarworks fairy superior to what I envisioned it would be upon completion. Without knowing and having complete confidence in SF Guitarworks from the past six years of their maintenance and upgrades to my guitars, I would not have begun to attempt the process of brining this dream to life.
