    Great fun to watch this year! A pile of excellent guitars. I've been inspired to join the challenge next year, come hell or high water--or pick-up winding. :lol:

    :lol: Don't forget yer helmet!!
    I am very honored to be in this group, I'm humbled by the talent and creativity I've seen in these challenges. Thanks to those that have encouraged me either by your vote or PMs or in the thread.

    On your build, I thought the integrated neck/body and neck stabilization of your build was great to see - gave me some ideas, and I love the top too! This view is awesome!

    as well as this one:

    The finish was first rate too!

    I'm a fan!! I tell ya, 21st is the place to be!! :lol:

    On my build(s) - I'm always trying progressive stuff and not everyone is into the direction all of that takes, but that's what I am interested in and these challenges have really pushed me to do my best. I've built my best guitar yet, and the ideas I was shooting for worked our pretty well; so I'm overjoyed.

    I'm also very happy to see the best of the best get the recognition they deserve!

    Thanks Mojo! Someday I would love to try some body contours like yours, maybe a little complex for me currently but man i love the way it looks. I'll start with a carve top on the next which i was too chicken to try on this build. Dude that quilt scared me. :eek::lol:

    Edit: I know what you mean about going in a direction not everyone will follow . I guess thats what i like about it most though there is not another like it. :p

    I cant wait to see what you build next I really dig designs that dare to stray from the sandbox.

    Thanks everyone for the support and encouragement. I'm humbled by the outcome.

    What a year for builds this was. I can't believe the calibre of people here. We are the luckiest forum on the net, by far the best "support network" I've ever been witness to.

    Besides, as I said earlier in the year to a fellow compatriot building his first,

    I mean, we're making guitars! How freaking cool is that?!

    ;)
