Thought some of you'd appreciate this little video about making a Seasick Steve Morph:
Nice build.Bill. I especially like the centre stripe on the box...
Just finished my second guitar.(Or maybe the third if you count a banjo I made from a cigar box I bought on Ebay but was too small to make a guitar out of).
The fret board's one of Chickenbone John's, but the rest's all me.
Ex drawing board neck, homemade box, two piezos, & the rest you can see.
Must get around to learning to play the things properly!

Col, sending musical instruments is a pain, as most carriers specifically exclude them from insurance cover unless they are in a hard case. Nothing is immune from damage, but we really make an effort to package well, we double-box all our guitars (already bubble wrapped), in a single thickness corrugated inner carton, then a double wall outer box. We have our packing boxes custom made, and it's reasonably cheap, at £1.00 - to1.75 a box depending on size and quality, but there is a minimum run of 25. These days we use UPS for most stuff (we used to use CityLink until the went bust). We book it all online and they collect from us..all nice and easy and cheaper than ParcelForce. I think most carriers regard "Fragile" and "Handle with Care" tape and stickers as a challenge rather than in instruction.
