    First report , i suck a making nuts , i bet that's point of getting those files . Ok the guitar is loud it might just be the strings i am not use to nickel plated steel . It needs to to a fret leveling i think the 12th is too low and and a little mishap with the beveling file . The intonation is not bad to some point really playable . The pots still work the screw pole pieces need to be carefully adjusted .

    I'm on my third set of nut files at this point in life. I have the Hosco set. They are the best of the sets I've purchased.

    I forgot a few pictures , before i wet sanded the back i used wax to fill any holes .

    Because the last time it took weeks before i could set the relief i decided removed the truss rod nut , that worked !

    Best regards

    Hi guys , sorry for the delay , i conducted a few test with the guitar to see how it sounds , i usually play in open A or G . I sounds great but i need to get used to the pickup its really reactive and raw its less permissive than i'm used to . It sound great in open A , but you know when you have this pickup if it doesn't sounds like Ry Cooder you have a problem , It has only one magnet and its plenty loud .

    I tried to get the sound , so i tuned to open D and added overdrive as a boost and there it was ! It sounds like in the movie Crossroad , now i need to remember how to play in open D .

    I am so busy this week i hope to have time by Sunday to play something .

    That looks awseom Mark!

    I really like the body style, I find it super comfortable to play.

    I made one for myself out of reclaimed pine and a $100 epiphone donor guitar.

    I have recently picked up a vintage pickup that I might put in it, currently has a damarzio blues bucker.
    I used a lp junior style wrap around bridge and the dobro style tailpiece.

    Thanks guys!

    I wasn't sure if it could give the sound since it has only one magnet , it sounds amazing to me anyway .

    I have been nut abut the sound since the mid eighties , i finally got it !

    I build it to sell it , but its a keeper ...

    Best regards
