    Being a big fan of cedar myself I love your build thus far! Can't wait to see it completed.

    Been a slow build but I am almost finished. Just need to put in the neck pickup and string it up. Should be finished soon.

    Nice work! I've made a bunch of guitars out of cedar over the years, but here was my favourite. Reclaimed cedar fence pickets.

    eBay, there's a seller in Maine that has white cedar and it's beautiful, so is the birdseye maple they sell.

    Too bad you aren't closer. I have an extra rough cut cedar body we might could deal on.

    Thanks! I finally got a neck pickup, that I like, today. Going to try to get it installed and finish it up this week.
