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 .
