Thanks Derek and Dave, I really like the License plates, I build a lot of them, they are amazing, back woods engineering, nuts bolts and junk, and you are off to blues heaven. I can’t believe how good they all sound,both acoustic And amped.

Thanks chuck, I use a looper, but on this I used a  Digitech Trio I got for Christmas.  It plays bass and drums.  Cheap too $49

Yeah buddy, great stuff.  You’ve definitely inspired me to use my looper more and add a wah to my board.

Wow a lot to go on here , first all who are not friends please become friends here and on Facebook. APG and Uncle John  1950 is a good year. I was lucky to come across that plate early in my building career, it is number 5.  Really didn’t know what I was doing but it turned out to be one of my best. I was lucky to come across a 1948 this summer, I have been looking for a long time ( this is my year)  it will be a future build. Thanks to my California friend  Richard for encouraging me to post, you are the master of  video production. Last to my friend  BOB Manhard, please write to me , I grew up in Tonawanda. You can see videos and pictures of my guitar builds on my Facebook page and at YouTube.  This is great thank you all.
