Figured I would buy one, learn to play it, then try my hand at building a diddley bow and progress from there. bolts for bridges and hinges for tailpieces are the two things that really sold me.

I still can't play a lick of it either! In fact, mine is in New Orleans at the moment, in prep for the CBG Fest!

I'll admit that I am bad at keeping up over here, but Shane gave me a shout and directed me over. I just had to take a look. After that sense of deja vu, I am definitely looking forward to the completed build!

Thanks for the comment John. I actually didn't realize they used that for the newsletter so thanks for drawing my attention to it. :-)
