Had a bit of time so I decided to join the contest. Pine body, tapered and back angled oak neck. Walnut bridge and fretboard with medium frets. Fretwork is done and the action is real nice, Sealed machine heads. Handmade tailpiece, volume pot, and Fender single coil. 25" scale tuned to GDG with heavy strings. One liter paint can lids and that's about it.
Cool build Milt!
Been awhile since I built guitars one at a time, so I took it slow and tried to do my best. It was a lot of fun.
