    Hi Fal,

    I'd love to see some more photographs of your guitar if you have any. My Jazz Special will have a number of similarities to yours.

    Regards,
    D

    That truly sucks! It’s hard to imagine cleating a brand new guitar because of cracks. Sorry for the bad news. I don’t feel it matters that these are shipped internationally as damages can occur even when shipped in the states.

    That’s one beautiful arch top FT! Exactly how I’d order one. Enjoy it!

    Update. I am sending back the guitar to Bryant. He feels terrible that something like this could happen. He has offered to build a new top. He will begin work the 3rd week of August and said he will do everything possible to get the guitar back within 6 months.

    For those interested - here is a link to a new post from Bryant. It’s a Jazz special with a TK Smith floating pickup.

    When Bryant gets back to building this model - he’s agreed to make me one of these Jazz special acoustic versions with a CC floating pickup.

    Bryant writes on Instagram: "Jazz Special with @tksmithguitar floating pickup. I think I’ve found my favorite contemporary pickup for this model. This TK Smith single coil has the power and edge of an old CC, with the clarity and depth of a great humbucker. It’s really impressive."

    Ugh, I guess I should get one of those pickups now.

    I’ll vouch for this TK Smith. It’s a fantastic pickup.

    On a few of the recent Jazz Specials and perhaps a few others, I have noticed that the MOP markers on the neck look to be amber in color. Is Bryant selecting MOP that is naturally that color or does he have a process for getting that effect? It’s quite unique and beautiful. Here’s an example on Pasquale Grasso’s guitar:

    I bet it sounds great would love to hear one but I have to admit the looks of it could be a better package, it is a bit unrefined.

    Mark M,
    Maybe it's reflected light?
    Much red surrounds him, and other pics of him in other surrounds see white?
    Just a question

    Bryant does have colored MOP , some in a golden hue which he used on my Triener Georgian. It's strikingly beautiful in hand.

    I'm not sure what Trenier did on this guitar, but people have been aging Cellulose Nitrate inlays for Les Paul's for years, so their artificially aged Les Pauls have inlays that match the rest of the guitar (supposed to look like Bursts from the last 50s-1960).

    Common method is to wipe the board with acetone. Inlays pick up some of the color from the wood.

    A post from Bryant on Facebook this morning:

    Catching Up...


    I closed my order list a few years back, and am finally getting close to being able to restructure my building process to better suit my needs and those of my clients. I know I promised many of you I'd get back in touch when I could handle a few more orders - well, now's the time. Please drop me a line if you'd like to commission an instrument for 2022/2023, after that, I'll be making instruments in "collections" for immediate sale.

    Thanks for having a look, and for your ongoing support,

    Bryant TRENIER

    It's quite common but just not in the guitar world. Most players prefer /are used to the white MOP. There different variants in Abalone shells also, green and red ....

    GOLD-LIP OCEAN PEARL OYSTER (Pinctada maxima), Indonesia and the Philippines: a source of GOLD M.O.P., which comes from a thin yellow layer underlying the white nacre. White material from these shells typically has lots of colorful iridescent "flash".

    I just remembered these photos I took when Pasquale visited my place in 2019, not long after he got his Special.

    I don't know how clearly you can see them, but the block inlays are split, with the inlays a more typical white colour between the A and E strings. Nice detail!

    EDIT: A much clearer shot of the inlay design from the Trenier Facebook page, showing the guitar as delivered.

    From Bryant’s FB page: the second blonde Broadway and the first solid wood Jazz Special are in the finishing stages. I presume the carved Jazz Special will be a similar, updated version of my Model E. If so, it will indeed be special! It looks like this one will receive a floater.

    Oh wow, didn't realize he had only made one blonde Broadway so far. My guitar's got a baby sister!

    How is his solid wood Jazz Special different than his other solid wood cutaway guitars?
