Well, we did it - with NO "Epic Fails" ... 4 for 4!!!! Each of the 4 Vets started with a box of parts and built a complete Telecaster. They each went home w/ the guitar, a 6ft cable, and a (used) Crate Amp - they will all continue to get one-on-one and group instruction from G4V teachers going forward. We were SO fortunate today have the help from Denny Rauen -- w/o whom there surely would have been one or two "Fails", at LEAST! It was awesome for me (personally) to get to watch and learn from a REAL pro who has done work for countless stars and, BTW, INVENTED the "Compound Radius" Sammy raised more parts and $$ than was needed for the workshop, so here he is presenting a $500 check to the local G4V chapter We had 2 of the guitars instructors from G4V and my buddy helping out as well - and we were able to complete the 4 guitars in about 6 hours Denny had to do some minor massaging of parts - but overall the GFS "budget" necks and XGP bodies performed quite well, and ended up making really nice instruments!
