    Rules question: does shipping cost for parts count toward the total?

    I would say no basically because of the guys that live no where near places that they can get decent part/materials.

    Agreed. I'll add an amendment to that.

    Oh man, under $200? I think it’s time for a pine build finally.

    "-Builds must be under 200$ USD or comparable to current Exchange Rate as of the “End Build Thread” dates."

    Shouldn't it be at the time the items are bought? I bought ~$190 of stuff in £, but if the pound weakens (yay Brexit) I'm suddenly over budget retroactively.

    I'd say you're correct. I read that line to be in reference to the total spent on the guitar by the deadline, not whatever the exchange rate is by that time. But I'll clarify.

    I too have to throw in the towel. I never got the motivation to decide which build to do, and then took on a couple foster dogs. Can't wait to see everyone's submissions tho!

    I need to crank away, but I think I'll finish on time. In my head it was ending in the 26th, not the 23rd. Still counts if it's by end of day, right?

    No way I can finish mine by deadline, too much other stuff going on without a minute to spare.

    That's too bad! I've always liked your work. I hope it catches your fancy again in the near future.

    I'm experiencing the opposite, I think I may actually finish a few projects that have been sitting around for years.

    This is why luthiers are so slow...buncha procrastinators and quitters!!! :p

    Or maybe we bite off more than we can chew. New builds always look tasty.

    I had convinced myself that I had finished mine and just needed to update the thread. Then I remembered that it doesn't currently have a backplate or truss rod cover. Guess I know what my weekend plans are now!
