Scott Thile: Sandblasted Bent Bulldog with Celluloid (OP2) (265)
Product Number: 002-615-0001
The Opus designation isn't a grade, but Scott's unique manner of classifying certain shapes. If it's a form that he has a special fondness for, and anticipates making a fair amount of during his career, it will get an Opus number. His Bulldog/Rhodesian shapes get an 'Opus 2' (OP2) stamp, and this awesome Opus is one composition that will not only appeal to the widest variety of audiences, but will have many humming the leitmotif well after the curtain is drawnAdroitly executed in the finest tradition of the North American school, this modernist beauty exudes a palpable sense of forward movement within a totality that is as warm, intuitive and inviting as the prospect of a get together with old friends. The seal, russet and burnt umber of the stains enhance the impression of easy charm, while lending additional vibrancy to the straight grain that runs perpendicular to the rings. A band of ivory colored celluloid bridges the Cumberland bit and alluring stain, completing this neo-classic to perfection --R. 'Bear' Graves
