    It was an accident and now it's in the workshop, I carried this almost a mile because there was no way to get there with a car...

    Quick and easy today.... I had to make a lefty out of this one for a kid at school who is starting guitar lessons...... I think it came from a flea market/garage sale...

    just swapped the strings over, lowered the bridge piece, tuned the nut slots and gave it a bit of a clean/polish.......

    I hope he likes it and becomes a player..... I'll give him 6 months to see if he takes it on before making him a lefty solid body... ;)

    Interesting tuner choice. Never seen that before but it really fits well.

    Hardware was all leftovers from previous builds, rebuilds and repairs. Seemed a shame to let it sit in the drawers. Wasn't sure about it when I started but it's growing on me. In fact I'll go out on a limb and say that I like it.

    In all fairness I was given several boxes of leftover guitar parts. Thanks to PV for his generosity. Gives me an excuse to use them and build more guitars.
