    Congrats Scatter Lee... and to everyone else who gave it a go. It was a really fun month watching all these guitars come to life. I'd be proud to own any one of them.

    I'm already looking forward to next years competition.

    Beautiful work everyone! It's inspiring to see such quality instruments being made - it shows all of us that with a little time & effort, we can do the same thing. Of course, having the fountain of knowledge known as tdpri only a few clicks away doesn't hurt!

    Congrats Scatter Lee!
    I think you need to talk to the DIY TV network about getting yourself a show.
    I know I'd watch it.

    Fantastic effort from all concerned, even those that were unable for one reason or another to complete in time.

    To the three guys on the podium, I think your guitars look amazing. If they play as well as they look, they are fine indeed.

    As for the winner, I must say that's the build I followed most and the end result looks stellar.

    Congrats..

    As a newbie here, I think I came around at a great time! It was so much fun to read all the build threads and get a concentrated crash course on building a great Tele on the cheap!

    Congrats to the winners... and to all the participants! There was something unique and impressive in every build.

    Thanks!

    Congrats to everyone who attempted the contest. That's what really made it fun. I hope to see more of these in the future—with a different twist of course.

    DANG! Those are all impressive. I really like the looks of the Palletcaster. That whole coppery look is really cool.

    This was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I'm hoping I have access to a workshop next year, I'd love to be a part of it.
