The CB "45"
(click pictures for larger version)
Chris created the "45" shown here as a donation to benefit St. Matthew's Church in Franklin, TN. The guitar was sold on this web site via an email auction that was completed on August 1st, 2004. The winning bidder was Tom Harrison of Nashville, TN. Not only did Tom purchase an heirloom-quality custom instrument that represents the height of the guitar maker's art, but he (and Chris) greatly helped St. Matthew's in their ministry. Congratulations, Tom!
