    Darn! I thought it would only be all these other hackers. Now we have a real artist in the mix.

    Good luck Lisa. I know whatever you build, it will be beautiful.

    Good luck, Lisa. You'll probably beat Nosmo. It's been an hour and a half, and he still hasn't built anything. :D

    Thanks guys! I don't think I have any chance of winning, just wanted to challenge myself on the deadline mostly and obviously have some fun building another guitar. :)
