I know of a tune called A White Sports Coat and a Pink Carnation, but it wasn't done by Pat, it was done by Marty Robbins,IIRC.

Wow. The finish really brightens up the rosewood. Nice.

Right on!
Somehow I always have a very strong mental picture of Pat dressed this way doing a cover of WSCAAPC and singing this song from this era. And don't forget to throw in those unforgettable 1950s white bucks!

And of course, that brings to mind Jimmy Buffett's "A White Sports Coat and a Pink Crustacean"!

Crusties aside, that's my corduroy-clad left arm and a Bulgari Sport that I've had for a loooong time. Not a bad watch if you don't mind a half-inch hunk of stainless steel hanging off your wrist.

My shop coat was at the cleaner's...

Paul (& Dale) – while I can’t do this type of stuff myself; I sure do appreciate your all’s talent and touch! It just amazes me when someone can take hunks of wood and end up with something looking like the pictures. Keep it coming!

Paul must have the hands of a surgeon. Otherwise, I'd probably be looking at Bulgari scratches on the back of his masterpiece.

Paul wears expensive jewelry and a corduroy jacket when he works because he's making such classy instruments! :D

That wood looks so beautiful.

Paul, I have dreamed of owning a rosewood jumbo Rick for a long time. Your photos are fabulous. I studied with Charles Fox before he relocated from Healdsburg to Oregon. I wanted a better understanding of my own acoustic guitars. That education gave me a huge appreciation for your work on this dreadnought. I like playing them much better than making them...a lack of patience I suppose.

This may be the first rosewood guitar I've seen with a maple neck. It's lovely to behold! -john
