It took 3 attempts to get the camoflage paint right, but we
presented the guitar to him on his birthday in Sept. 2014.

Needless to say, he was speechless...a rarity! In addition to the

Hunting items, the back of the guitar featured a picture of Jim

and "his girls", wife Randi and daughters, Rian and Reese,
who he adored and loved more than life.

Sadly, just 3 months later, Jim passed away suddenly.

He was my friend, my brother, and I proudly shared the
stage with him over a hundred times.

This is my buddy, Jimmy Don Martin. We met about 14 years ago, served on 2 church worship teams. He was a gifted singer, and I picked up the guitar part. A few years back, I began teaching him how to play guitar. In Summer 2014, a pastor friend contracted me to build Jim a special hunting themed cigar box guitar. Jim was an avid outdoorsman and loved to hunt and fish. So, with the help of a few friends, I began building "The Hunter".

 

They supplied rifle shells, deer
antlers, boar's tusks, turkey
feathers, arrow tips, gun strap,
etc. Genesis 10:9 supplied the
inspiration, "He was a mighty
hunter before the Lord."
