    Oh great - what will you inspire me with this time? I'm still trying to master the roman numeral dot markers you turned me onto. No I haven't had much success in case you were wondering ;).

    I really enjoyed your last years build, looking forward to this one.

    Did someone ask for punishment? If so you came to the right place. ;)

    Well, I'm not gonna tell you what I'm doing straight away, but it won't be anywhere near as complex a project as last year's was.

    Still sticking with the weird materials though, this year I'm using a product called "wood". I have expectations it will work well for this kind of thing.

    What I will say is that the guitar is a tribute to a couple of forum members. It would give the game away if I said anymore about that at this stage.

    This will be my first guitar with a "painted" finish. I use the word "painted" with quotations becuse, well, you'll see why soon enough. I'm gonna get down to designing in the next couple of days, and hopefully have my materials/proof pic and a start made on them before the weekend, when the floodgates OPEN!!

    Oh, and thanks for the kind words everyone. :)

    Gotta remember to buy a couple of months paid subscription on Photobucket for uninterrupted viewing. I'll add that to the build list.

    Phil, very glad you're participating.

    You say that you've spent much less time thinking about
    your entry this year.

    I figure we can take the difference in spectacularness between
    your entry this year and last, take the difference in how
    many hours you planned, and get a spectacularness/hour
    number for you. :lol:
