Gentle, my arse! That's a sweet first effort, man. Good job!

   I'm about as gentle as a rabid werewolf (check out my "videos" of me "playing" as an example),

   but here goes: 8 hours build time !!!  For THAT ???  Would have taken me 80 HOURS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

   That,  and I probably would have ended up losing an eye or something...

No, seriously... who built it? Great job indeed. King B's make the best 6 strings IMHO.

Thanks a lot guys. I learned and researched a lot on the site to try to figure out what I was doing. And you might not be so kind if you saw the inside... Yikes! Again thanks.

In my case Brad the insides almost always look crap, but in my opinion, from looking at the outside it would look pretty impressive. Be proud of that mate ... it's superb work.   Question ..(Whats it sound like).

I have been known to watch glue dry for 8 hours! Nice build!    Bizzaro

Wooo, you did that in 8 hours and it is your first one??? Outstanding.

thats the bees  knees and a  bag of chips  ;-)  i likey !!!!!

WOW...great lookin build sir...what did that sexy engraved neck plate set ya back.?  Sound bite, sound bite, sound bite,..lol

8 hours! 8 hours! Damn you, and your construction skills! It looks great, nice one.

beautiful, 1st or not well done , its the kind of build i want to end up with. bo diddley be proud.

Nice.  I like the Fuentes boxes. The Partagas Black is another fairly long box, average 11 1/4" outside end to end measurement, good for shorter scale necks.

Not a bad first build time using prefab parts. If you make another like it things will go even faster.

Now if you want to challenge yourself build and fret a neck.;)

If you are interested in making your own custom plates you might find the following site to have some valuable information.

Electro etching brass

Look forward to seeing more from you.
