It was supposed to be an easy sunday! Now my heard hurts

Well i guess i've hit what can only be described as "builders block" (very similar to writers block).
Had a productive day making the neck and headstock for my #2 build only to spend the last 6 hours trying to decide on the rest of the design! I think ive picked the box to use, but so many ideas running through my head i cant make my mind up... Electric or acoustic? Fretted or not? Which tailpiece and bridge? Which tuners? Which sound hole covers? Aaaargh!!!!

I just stare @ like 3 or 4 boxes on my bench until it hits me....."that would make an awesome broom handle two string electric chugger" if that don't work I cut the grass. The grass gets long some times.

todays workshop build includes a new bed frame, so wont be getting into too much trouble for that... but i have started build 3 while waiting for glue to dry :-)

And another man is reduced to madness spending all his time in his workshop and annoying his significant other.

It is funny how that happens, I usually first start with idea on paper, drawn out and such, but as the build goes, some things change.

Sound's as if it was time for a cold refreshment to ponder over your dilemmas..( depending on the severity of issues  maybe 2 or 3 ...  ) (-:
