"I'm just building for myself and friends.  I had fantasized that it would be nice to build when I can and sell them but this certainly helped squash that idea.  I agree with you, it's much easier to sell to people who can hold it…"

"Duct tape is just to hold the foam box together. That will be wrapped in cardboard and maybe paper with just clear tape, like you say."

"I weighed the guitar, it’s 2 1/2 pounds. I also pieced the box together. Now I just need to do some final duct taping, wrap it in cardboard, and ship it. I expect it will cost about $20. Much smaller box at 38” x 10” x 5.5”."
