    I like the incident that a guy from New Zealand make the sad lost story of Andy, a happy for our forum event. New Zealand guys are crazy!:p:D

    Since Kwerk said that we have time since 2026 to finish our builds...

    And give a small continuation....

    I will try to finish in time, this time!!!:rolleyes:

    Andy is with Glen Smith somewhere watching us and laughing.

    LOL, I thought about Andy and Glen meeting in the great woodshop beyond, too, maybe gigging a bit together on their gold teles. . . . !

    Multi-scale? Nick, you're getting brave!

    Glen's might be gold. I bet Andy already stripped that finish off!

    Love your builds Nick. I'll be watching too.

    You plug them into bottles of Foster's. Guaranteed to keep pests away. No living being on earth can stand the stuff.

    Oh man!!! Now the cover is blown!! Since it helps to establish the pedigree of the guitar. The maple first went to the Netherlands and changed there planes, then it detoured to Budapest where it got dropped into care of a local mail office.

    Nick are you just fanning out the frets or is the neck relieve fanned, too. I think you need a railtrack sized truss rod for that neck relieve

    This is the true story how the wood came here, for anyone that doesn't know!!!!:rolleyes:

    Helmut the neck wood is just fine, also I am not going to use a truss rod this time.
    It is called multiscale guitar because with this wege as guitar neck,the more you tune it the more it change scale!!!!!:p:D

    Your secret is safe with me. Mainly because I don't know what it is!
