    Probably not much chance of that happening. I have maxed out!

    I ordered a roasted maple neck blank for this guitar. I will probably do a lacquered headstock and hand rubbed oil finish on the back, but I am making no promises. Need to get my hands on the plank first.

    Last I knew where Arlo was, he was a 'mainuh'...

    I am so happy for all your developments Colt! I spent a little time in Maine and LOVE that state... one of my good childhood friends relocated there 35 years ago and loves it... and he lives in interior Maine! Very cool!

    Howdy, Colt, welcome to Maine! I'm enjoying the videos. Please feel free to PM me if you get stuck looking for wood, or anything else I can help with; I may know a guy. I'm over in Biddeford. I look forward to meeting you, if you're ever down this way.

    I haven't been to Maine since 2005, but it's truly unique. Not like any other state in the US.

    Hi Bill, I'd be very interested in a possible wood source. Now that I am up and running, I'm hoping to do a lot of projects.

    Hi, Colt! Very cool!
    I left you a comment on vol 3!
    Nice to actually "see" you building.

    Welcome back! I took 6-months off last year too - but no-one missed me! :D

    Thank goodness you didn't attempt to run the router along that edge! How many threads are here on the TDPRI bemoaning the fact that they ran a router along the edge and had an unrepairable tear-out. It's the sander every time for me!

    Great thread and thanks for sharing. :)

    It can be very tempting with a spiral router bit - very tempting. I quit routing the corners on necks a long time ago because of end-grain tear-out.

    You and I, Sir, share the scars of our own impatience! :)

    Hopefully others will see your video and have an epiphany! Then our suffering will not have been in vain! :cool:

    Well I'm a few days late, but welcome back, if I can say that as someone who quit being active on the forum? I do recall when you talked about doing a paper on guitars. I can't recall what exactly you were evaluating, but as I did my engineering degree, it definitely popped into my head, how you can explain all the "mojo" with some relatively basic science! What did you get your PH.D in, and what are you lecturing on?
