    Thank you Kwerk. My family and I are very impressed with your very detailed build. Very Cool! :)

    Thank you sir, I appreciate all the feedback and encouragement you have given during my first build. It is great to see the guys who know how supporting those of us who are just beginning. Your build thread was inspiring and you created a great guitar. :)

    Thank you. I finally got to take a look at your final shots...very, very nice!

    Once again, I am so impressed with the quality of work that goes into these "home made" guitars. Custom shop has nothing on you guys!

    Have I missed something? Being new at this I don't know if I should just be patient or did I miss the directions on voting? :?:

    Did yourself proud! Beautiful result, and you did a great
    job in overcome lots of little obstacles. I liked where you
    said something like "completed a difficult challenge, as as a
    bonus got a new guitar"

    ps I lived in Austin for 4 years and love the hill country.
    I remember flying in for my first visit and expecting to
    see flat, barren land and tumbleweeds. Instead I saw
    lakes and lush hills.

    Flatfive - Thank you very much. It probably would have not been completed without feedback and support from guys like you. I feel honored to be able to participate in this. As a beginner, I know what some of the other beginners went through and the results are amazing. All of them are guitars I would love to own.

    Austin is a really nice area, especially the hill country. Were you here for a job or just cause you liked the area?

    New Photos

    Since the voting is over I thought it would be ok to post up some better pictures that were taken after I posted my official Pic. My son took these the day after the challenge was over.
