    Thanks to everyone else for participating as well as organizers @LiveOVErdrive and @Defyantly, and hopefully we can build on this for next week year.

    I've also unlocked everyone's threads, so if you feel inclined to eventually finish your builds, that's an option.

    Same goes for the other contestants! I hope to join you all next year.

    Thanks guy's. Everything came together relatively smoothy on this one. cant say I've had many builds like that before....

    I really wanted to post some sound clips for you guy's but failed due to my tech inferiority.....

    Sounds like it's road trip to Alberta time, although I cant say I'd recommend that at this time of year.... unless you're a big fan of snow and ice! I honestly cant play the thing. It plays just fine.... but I've never owned a 7 string or anything tuned down anywhere approaching G# before. It's very alien to me.... like playing a bass almost... I plan to use the guitar to try to learn some Polaris but I'm not sure if I'll get anywhere.... I guess we'll see....
