    Wow, Barncaster, what an amazing build thread and end
    result. Every time you ran into an obstacle you turned
    the guitar into something cooler and better. Aren't
    you glad you faced those bumps in the road.

    That ebony top is especially gorgeous.

    Nice work!!

    Thanks Flatty!,

    It was a great learning experience. I think I'm a little greyer as a result but it was fun and I met a big group of great people.

    man, i'm trying to catch up and go through every thread... this thing is really cool.

    definately don't give up on that pickguard. i had the same idea as R. Stratenstein, acetone the tort to a piece of white, then bind it with black. or maybe just a piece of clear plexi would be enough to get it off the ebony... maybe put spacers under it like i did with my pickguard.

    Thanks V,

    Yes, I have not given up on it. Am just a little burned out right now and will get to it soon. Second on the list is to get a more functional tail piece made. And third on the list is to optimize the electronics. The cocked wah position for some reason loses volume when engaged. Maybe we should start a "Where are they Now" thread in 6 months. By the way, love your guitar. I play plectrum banjo myself so I get the 4 stringed thing. It's way cool.
