Made from scraps. 24” scale. Still need to add a graphic and pickup. Lite as a feather.

Light is good, Jerry.  Looks pretty good too.

The neck is at a pretty good angle, and I was using a domino for a bridge saddle. With all the pressure from the break angle, the domino kept falling over. I had a scrap piece of billet aluminum with threaded holes in it, and some 4-4- screws that fit the threads. So I drilled a couple of holes in the domino, and screwed the metal bar on. The domino is now stable. Probably overkill, but I was just using up found objects.

Off to a good start, what’s the function of the metal bar in front of the bridge?
