    Thanks guys!
    Thanks dood. Your guitar was pretty awesome.

    That's pretty nice for some Home Depot wood! I'm looking forward to seeing more of these - though I'm guessing the woods from Home Depot haven't been dried out enough and all these guitars will end up warping and stuff... Right?

    Why would you think that?

    Home Depot wood is properly dried and dimensioned.

    I'm sure Home Depot would have a terrible rep if they were selling sub-par woods that warped once the home project was complete.

    Wish I had a half, maybe even a third of your luthiery skills. Wouldn't be having such a hard time sourcing an 8 string over here if I did!

    Its not that hard if you give it some effort.
    I built my first guitar when I was 12. Was it great? No.But if a 12 year old can do it so can you.

    Oh man, it looks awesome! Fretboard looks sweet. I wonder how it plays.

    Awesome job! I almost can't believe you built this for that price!

    Wow that looks sick and for a hundred bucks, its awesome! Any idea where to start? How did you get woods thick enough for the body? I only see stuff thats way too thin. Is there a truss rod or did you just carve the neck?

    Not crazy about the fretboard look but even considering that you can change that to standard maple or whatever, this thing is VERY impressive, especially the budget...so now I am starting to wonder how much I am getting ripped off by Big Guitar and why things really have to be done in 3rd World countries...

    Your hardware cost would be realistically closer to $200 though (pickups, wiring, tuners, back plate, etc...) unless you buy from Guitarfetish...
