You've still got an hour. Is that enough time to add frets?

Seriously - nice job on that thing. I liked your fret board radius sanding block idea... might have to steal it and make my own.

I am probably going to keep this neck and fret it. Probably make the body a clock or something. But who knows, I might figure out how to play it and keep it just like it is.

Thanks Martino, I just wish mine turned out as pretty as your build.

There are a lot of things that you can procrastinate on, but building a guitar is not one of them. No more deadline builds for me!

I changed this back to Completed because Colt informs me it was supposed to be fretless. Sorry for the mistake.
