    Ta daa

    Here she is all strung up. Got some tweaking to do. But it tunes up and I can play it. Tomorrow I will post sound clips and outside pics.

    Let it be, Let it be, Let it be, Let it be. A Great Guitar build, and Be-autiful T'Caster. Love that wood, and you did an excellent job.

    Outstanding job guityak!

    You've got a keeper in your hands. Before listening to the sound files I must say that if it sounds as beautiful as it looks you've got a killer axe in your hands pal.:D

    Congrats for the guitar and for the beautiful kids you have! Have lots of fun with this exquisite instrument and enjoy it.
