CAB~ cheap ass build. I do love building, but give most of them away lately. Scrap pine neck, lathe finger board and through the box heel. Scrap metal tail piece. 3 frets and acoustic only.

If it goes to someone who needs more frets and a piezo, that will be fine.

Tuned GDG and or ADF#.

AGP, you excel at CAB.  Love that banjer you just made.  

K, I can send a note to your momma.

Thanks, Wes.  Me too.  I admire fancy stuff but prefer simple for my own.

I like those simple builds

Looks good UJ but I don't think I could play it... it only has 3 fret markers and I need more notes than that.  :D

Thanks!   And Sorry, Jerry.  I went to the World Cup in 11' and they told me to never come back.  I think Richard is planning the virtual Califiest and so far I am planning on going and being on my bestest behavior.  How about you?
