It will start playing life as a DGB 3-string. Kind of cold and snowy to go out in the shed and put on the tuners and make a saddle. One of these days
Piezo pickup. Player side sound hole. 23 inch scale. Poplar wood.

Unc,  

 I like the color scheme. I hope you have a song to go with that so we can hear it.

You're right. It's too darn cold to go out to the shed and work.  Stay inside and play guitar.

Thanks, Doug.  Just strung it up and I am happy with it.

Love those old boxes! Pretty stingy on the fretwire use Uncle John. Nice touch with the red headstock!

Thanks, Jerry.  It is supposed to get up to almost the freezing point today.  Maybe I will bundle up, shovel to the shed and work on it.
