"Hey JD. I saw that your build has a bolt on neck. Did you end up with that tee-shirt neck we talked about last year? The one on Amazon? Looking forward to seeing your build."

J.D.

Thank you for the friend request - gladly accepted sir.  Look forward to communicating with you - headed to the workshop to continue working on build 23 as it is becoming a much more intense build than i had expected initially.  But I guess the more we let our thinking outside the box so to speak evolve the crazier these builds can become - have a great day and again thanks for all you nice comments.

J.D., that first build is looking good.  Simple might be best on it.   Lots of how to play lessons here - kind of depending on what style of music you want to play.   Page top under resources, knotlenny's CBG 101 has helped a lot of us.

Good to have you for a CBN friend.
