    Hey all,

    I'm a brand new member, long time lurker from Albuquerque. Just getting to the finishing stages of an Esquire partscaster build I've been working on for several months, drawing heavily from Buckocaster's legendary Emeraldcaster thread in trying to build something nodding at Don Rich and Luther Perkins (also inspired by a FCS Journeyman build from a few years ago). I've had a total blast with my first try at binding and shooting nitro, as well as making some rookie mistakes along the way. I've never wired a guitar before, and have some questions about setting up an Esquire that I'll bring up in the tech forum soon. Truly grateful for all of the knowledge shared here on TDPRI and excited to join the community! (below is just after shooting the candy rootbeer, before final top coats of lacquer)
