So I wanted to say a hello to all of you. I tinker with things a lot and about a year or so ago my son (6 at the time) decided we wanted to make him a little fret-less cigar box guitar. I more or less through in one for myself with frets.

You folks know, I am sure, how you cant just build one. So now I have 7 or so under my wings. After lurking a bit I decided to get on and say hi and thanks and show off a picture or two...

Thanks! Here are a couple I have put together.

Yeah, I tend to not do things the standard way. I am sure no two of my creations are ever the same. I like to throw things together and see what comes out, if you know what I mean. You should see the bike I built... but that is another story.

lookin  good  man  ;-)


You have some nice builds, Seth!
You should post your pictures in the 'pictures' section. You'll probably get a lot more looks and comments.

Thanks! A good idea to post in the picture section... I'll give it a try.

Nice guitars there Seth! 

I completely agree... once you build one you can't stop... soon you have ten...

And the AlleyRat pic looks like really like a still life composition. :)

Thanks all! I have some new stuff going up in the pictures section soon.

Nice background props in the "guitar crop" photo.

The guitars are looking good too.

Well I'm partial to rats.... : )
Great looking builds Seth! Really dig the Gibson amp! Bet that's a really sweet blues amp.

Cool guitars Seth. I take it you're a Colorado man with the licence plate and the Tincup whiskey (on my 'to try' list) :)

...and I want to see the bike you built.

welcome aboard Seth,nice make.

yeah how about pics of that bike. from ol blighty.john
