Ey, everybody. Soooo, I've been gone for a lil bit. Lots of life changes. One thing has not changed. Guit-boxes. Still love 'em. Been actually playing more than building and as I'll need to get a new shop, that may take a bit. I am grateful for my time building, as it helped me develop a better friendship with myself and given me a new life partner that has outshined even my long lost beloved PWH. She's the Mark 2.5 and has surpassed all my expectations of what my favorite guitar should be. I've got her strung in a drop E, like an 8, and she shines! Pic for reference.. https://flic.kr/p/EMS7nH You can find her thread, but this post is not about her. I just wanted to get back to you cats and share a couple things I never posted. Perhaps soon, I can get back to making sawdust and have some good stuff for ya. So a while ago, I built a sixer for a guy I worked with, based on one of his.. It came out alright. As usual, it started with some lumber and clamps and glue.
