Incoming Bashkin Guitars 2018 Build Thread

As you will have seen from earlier blogs, this year we are committing to bringing in an incredible selection of Bashkin Guitars to the TNAG Showroom! We will be offering a wide variety of body shapes and sizes and also branching out into other tonal arenas using woods alternative to the mainstream.

We caught up with Michael and asked him if he could send us a selection of build photos for the Baskins we have on order. It is incredible to see the craftsmanship, skill, time and effort that is going into these guitars! Michael, we salute you!

....ENJOY!
