Scott Thile: Smooth Bent Bulldog (OP2) (287)
Product Number: 002-615-0015
Adroitly executed in a manner that calls to mind both the best work of Giancarlo Guidi, as well as a bit reminiscent (to me) of Pohlmann's John Bull, this modernist beauty exudes a palpable sense of forward movement within a totality that is amazingly intuitive and inviting (no mean feat, given the edge we usually sense as we approach uber-modernity). Scott's stain does a yeoman's job of lending an additional vibrancy to the four-alarm flame grain and bodacious birdseye which drapes the entirety of the bowl and shank, and there is zero bleed through of the flame past the double bead. A "classic: reborn"? "Yeah, baby, YEAH!".
