    One of my favourite builds ever!

    Don't cut yourself short on the playing, it's kinda harder to just sit down cold and go for it. That's why I conscripted my kid for my build a couple years ago.

    That staple p/u blows me away. That was so inventive, ebony? whodathunkit!?

    This is a fantastic guitar. The attention to all the details throughout the build was amazing and it shows in the final product. Congratulations! Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and craftsmanship with us!

    I don't see how this could've come out any better. Well done.

    I would love to see more pics of the guitar and of your shop. As a hack I need some kind of reason why I couldn't produce such an amazing guitar. I can live with "Well if I had that shop I could do it too".. But if you show us an old school work bench, block plane and a chisel, I might have to quit guitar building :). :)
