This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

Hope you guys get all your stuff soon. 

I just ordered some pickups and tuners from C.B.Gitty on Thursday. Arrived Saturday. Thing about ordering from a company within your Country is, don't have any delays from customs and If I need to return it, it's a lot easier and cheaper.

Sometimes things work out great for little money, and then sometimes you get burned. Of course UPS, USPS and Fed EX can loose your stuff, damage it or steal it. So bad things can happen anywhere I guess. Good Luck.

That's why it's good to use eBay / Paypal. Buyer protections galore. If I don't get the parts this week, eBay will get my money back for the missing stuff.

And I wouldn't hesitate to order from Iron Gear in the UK again. Nice quality 'generic' pickups, and super fast shipping. UK to Wisconsin in a week.

That's quick shipping from across the pond.

Back in the 80's, I waited a month for a turn signal switch from MG.

started a six string box yesterday. it has been awhile.

Started working on a neck for my 6 string BO Diddly build using a silverware box.

Nice

What box are you using?

I picked this one up 2 days ago

That's a nice box. Looks rugged and strong.

Don't know what my silverware box is made of. It's light, so I'm thinking it's made of Balsa Wood. Hope it ends up sounding decent. I hate going through the trouble of building a git to only get a dud, happens sometimes.

I never came across a dud. but im sure its possible. the box walls are 3/8 and lid and bottom is 3/16.

#7, 3 string fretted ,Tassie Oak neck ,R&J #1 box which is a bit bigger than the #3 box going to let the neck in 1/3 from top of box to accommodate the size of box while playing ,got given a box a freebie parts ,pickups,jacks ,machine heads and other goodies ,its going to be my first fretted neck so looking forward to learning a new skill .
