Well, I joined the TDPRI last year as the challenge was wraping up. I'm thrilled to see this come around again. I'm in!!! The name Just A Caster, means I'm going for fit and finish. No fancy top or binding. Just classic lines and pristine finish...that's my goal anyway.
It will be made from Alder with a maple neck, rosewood fretboard...may change this so there's plenty of maple pictured for a neck and fretboard. Most of the hardware will come from an eBay purchase. I bought the whole lot pictured (bridges, pots, switches, tuners, ferrules) for $100 so I'll have to figure out what costs what after I decide what I'm using.
Glad to be a part of this year's challenge!
