    I've been watching this build quite a lot. Your jigs and low-tech techniques are very nice.

    The only thing I kind of wish (and it is really a hindsight is 20/20 kind of thing) is the ferrels...it would have been nice to have curved them a bit, to reinforce the pearl necklace idea. Given that you made your own bridge, you could have made it happen!

    I too was born on planet Akron and raised by Ghoulardi. I'm 8 years, well, 9 next month, older than you. Where did you go to school and where did you live?

    My Mom is in a retirement home in Montrose and my older sis lives in Copley.

    I'd say we have a winner and the winner worked at the lowest hourly rate.

    Sorry to be the 100th to say this but this build is totally awesome!
    The only thing though for me is i wished you somehow did white ferrules to make it look like pearls, but hey your the artist, and it still looks fantastic.
    Hats off to you

    good eye, waiting on decal sheets, not sure what to use for strap buttons yet, maybe some maple knobs and different tone caps, maybe a string retainer

    The range of your talent & ingenuity is astounding...
    the matter-of-fact way in which you present it is even more so !
    The spirit of Leo lives on in this build; hopefully this will end up in
    the hands of a player who will spend the next 30 or 40 years 'relic'ing
    it the natural way ! :)
