.i talked my pop into building one for me, thats when the bug hit him also.  he is now on   # 6 build in just a little over a week. he is just wating on some parts to come in so he can finish them.

 Nice builds !  What's the neck width on them ? 

Cool!! Great job, welcome to the Addiction!!!

Very nice build. Enjoy playing her, Keni Lee

Oh yeah, dynamite box! I found one but could not talk them out of it! Been looking all over for a good one!

Nice stuff, looks like a great start! 

thanks for the comments.

 need to get back to you on the neck width,

yep  good old dynamite box,    because they got to have soul....

the neck is 1" wide

 the next few pop has built have 1.5" neck

  Thanks , gravy !  Mine are 1.5" , although I've made a couple 1.25" which I liked really well . 

welcome aboard & very nice build yer dad did a great job enjoy
