One of these days (like when my playing justifies another guitar ), I'm gonna have to get you to make me one. That looks sweet.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Awsome !!!

Just looking at these pics makes me want to pick up the guitar again.
Just cain't do it right now. Got a fiddle to fiddle around with.

Tools are like guns, You can never have enough.
Where did I put that tape measure???

I've decided I need to do some more work on the bridge for my big old baritone project. The action is way too high. It has crazy sustain though, and sounds great, even acoustic. Once I get the bridge lowered a bit it will really play nicely and is going to crank as far as volume. Then I'll eventually spin a circuit board to do all the sound variations I want from the pickups (in phase, in parallel, out of phase, etc etc) and it's going to be an insane axe. If only I knew how to actually play it...

Holy crap in a handbasket that is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gary buddy, please put me on your Christmas list this year. I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful that guitar is. Absolutely blown away.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
