why not give building a try , we seem to be a little more patient the older we get i used to hate woodwork at school - i'm a joiner now , funny how things change !
thanks mate glad you like the Planks , they seem to have gone down well with most considering there not a Cigar Box , cant build them quick enought , last one i made was for me but ended up selling it at the UK Cigar Box Fest in october lol! - will be building some more soon
must say i'm not much of a player but since playing the three string guitars i've improved more over the past year than i ever did over the past ten years with six strings - less is more for me hehe!
