    Very nicely done, RodeoTex. That's one for my bucket list.

    Well I'm declaring it done. There will be some final fret and nut work later for sure.
    So much for the guitar porn photos I'd hoped for.

    I thought the white curly cord went with the vibe.

    The little 16th" letters in the 'Remade In Texas' were really hard to keep straight. (It might have been the 16th beer at fault actually)

    A fighter plane doing a donut in the sky the other day.

    Overall, the only regrets I really have is using a hotrod lookalike trussrod from Ebay, and not leaving a volute behind the nut.

    Next?
    I'm thinking about a 57 Mary Kay hardtail with '54 CS pickups.

    Thanks for watching along with me.
