Bridge plate on.........skip a few processes...........attaching the string tree.
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.
You've got yourself a beauty there.........
That looks fantastic, congratulations.
How do you do and post the sound samples?
I was right!
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.
Another great piece of work, lots of talent around here!
Thanks, Leigh. I will explain my sound clip process when I do it.
Yes you were.
Tweaked the things that needed tweaking then asked my wonderful wife to take the pics for me.
My fav pic.
Here is my favourite pic.
Here are some more pics in some different lighting.
The now mandatory child approval photos. (Their words not mine)
So what do you think kids? Ahh just what I thought.
Beautiful pics, and those kids have great taste!
Hmm....... having problems with uploading a sound file. I think I may have to become a youtube friend first. :neutral: Watch this space for some clips.

Oh my that is close. I do feel I have been generous on most of my costs. I have listed the new price I paid on most of the things that I got off the old guitar.
Most impressive. Glad the kids approve!
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.
Congrats for the guitar and for the beautiful kids you have! Have lots of fun with this exquisite instrument and enjoy it.
