    Drum roll please..........presenting the uh 9 string thang? Geeeez ,pathetic but since it doesn't really fit a design or category I guess I'll just name it at some point (suggestions welcome). Before anybody gripes, yes I know, my cell phone takes crappy pictures.Next ones I'll dig out my old phone,the camera was pretty good if I recall. But the old HP 320 finally went to that electron yard in the sky so unless you wanna do a go fund me page for a camera we're stuck for now. Below is the body core, top and back and the neck blank.Also a layout of the Ricky style headstock but with only 9 tuners (at least in the beginning lol
    Just so you know, as usual I've been working on a few simultaneously. But fear not, just getting my feet wet again here,they'll all have their own build threads,hopefully with wit,humor, and most of all some of my dearest friends on this planet :D 60910657_291642738220958_3392284669255876608_n.jpg 60938117_2328112890794056_6221552675658399744_n.jpg 60951596_387254808798260_153333356124176384_n.jpg 61197145_1937371126367840_4401465713093509120_n.jpg

    Preparing the headstock extension scarf and then truing up.Also cutting the headstock ears.The core is maple/red oak/maple and the ears add a small red oak/maple on each side

    Oh yeah, they got amazing craftsmanship. Planes and chisels are still a foreign language to me, but I love my 3 Japanese saws!
