For number four I used my last Winterman's box and a piece of oak for the neck.  Didn't realise oak would be so hard to work......  I faced the headstock off with a piece of cedar from a broken box to match the body.  This one's a 25.5 inch scale acoustic (no piezo this time).  The string spacing is a little wider than usual just to see if it's any better for fingerpicking with my arthritic fingers.

Looks great Les!

I dig it, Les. Nice, clean lines on a simple and beautiful build. 

The cedar on the headstock is a nice touch; something I should employ on my rather shabby looking headstocks.

And the wide string spacing, especially on a fretless gitty, is nice for fingerpicking.

Really good stuff, man.
