This was the best fun I've had in years! Thanks TDPRI and all of those who suffered through my mishaps, and encouraged me when things went well! Accounting to follow shortly ...

Love the simplicity of the design, without the pickguard or control plate. Shows off the finish and wood grain well. Nice job on the bridge, too... looks so much better than one just cut off straight across!

Thanks Jim!

I got a video done, and it's uploaded to Youtube, but it now seems to be "processing" - I haven't done much YouTube, but I guess that's normal.

Here's the video:



One last pic - final weight, which I don't think has any bearing on the contest, but is interesting nonetheless:

8 lbs 5.7 ounces!
