    And the head...I like the way that the twisted head with a slight backwards angle alows for a very comfortable and soft transfer from neck to back of head.

    I once had a mahogany telly. Its does'nt sound authentic. Thus I sold it and bought a ash telly. Much better

    To be authentic, it must sound like what it is, and not strive to sound like anything else. Now that you bring up this concept, I find it to be most fitting, thank-you. The guitar sounds as authentic as I could possibly wish for.

    You did a great job and I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks.

    @Bendyha

    Sending this as a link to my BIL, who has a passing familiarity w/ the craft of woodwork, and can probably see cool things I don't even notice I'm looking at.
    What I like about this build is the way that things mount flush and one feature simply flows to the next.

    I don't fully understand what's going on at the switching station, but I DO appreciate the wire-routing tube.
    Has the OP been meeting for coffee w/ Gil?
    Hand on heart - deep respect.

    Peace - Deeve

    You may want to read more than the title of this thread - it's an outstanding display of skill and taste, and I think you may have missed the fun. Go back and check out what @Bendyha has accomplished, you'll enjoy it, I promise.

    Wow, to say I'm impressed would be a huge understatement. You're quite a craftsman.
