    It sounds great! The build back story images are here: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/what-diy-finish-for-old-brittle-fragile-pine.1071958/

    This was made from old family heirloom pine and is a gift to one of my military sons. I rushed to complete it because we are traveling to visit him on Monday. I strung it up and tested it and it sounds wonderful. Inspite of of the fact that i reversed the neck and bridge pickup wiring. :oops: The neck is from a 1991 MIM Tele.

    My son is a big Johnny Cash fan. I hope he digs it.
