Thanks, Rev.

I have not done much decoupage before,  but that is an interesting idea.

Sweet sweet build!  Love the headstock - but it'd be cool if you somehow match the distressed look of the body. Maybe something with thin fabric or newsprint, decoupaged in place and selectively sanded.  regardless - what a beautiful build!  Congrats, Rich.

Thanks for all the notes, guys.

When I first saw this box, I knew it would make a nice build.

Very nice!! I like the headstock. The black tuners work well.

Oh Yeah!, love the distressed look on this build, "Well Done" :-)

A looker for sure Rich! Looking forward to hearing and seeing it at the Zoom meeting shortly.
