    Just gorgeous, Herb! Makes me want to go mix up some pina coladas! Your results also have me re-evaluating the possibility of doing a faux binding on my build.

    Truly inspiring!

    Hey thanks R. , mmmmmmmm , pina coladas , a little dark rum to settle on the bottom , a little lite rum to stay on top :lol:

    Definitely think about the faux binding on your build , you've got that nice flame maple top , use it to it's fullest advantage .

    I really don't know what to say that hasn't already been said, Herb. You've really outdone yourself there. Everything is absolutely top notch and beautiful.

    Thanks very much Steve , it was the most fun I've had in quite a while , the challenge itself has been an eye opener , I've met a bunch of new folks , made a bunch of new friends , and thoroughly enjoyed myself :)

    Well , I have vacation starting in a few days so , I'll be off the grid for a while , should be back by the 7th of May or so , but if I didn't have that coming up I would probably go nuts :lol:

    Thanks very much esetter , glad you like :)

    What a spectacular guitar.

    Really like the no pg, pickup rings and faux binding.

    Enjoy your well deserved break.

    Cheers

    Thanks Guitar novice , very kind of you to say , I will enjoy the vacation , being away from the rest of the challenge builds for the last weeks I won't enjoy , I have no computer access where I'm going and no smart phone service , oh well , guess I'll have a lot of catching up to do when I get back , good luck with your build :)



    Thanks BR , glad you like , good building to ya :)
