    Tom, I have a real stupid question, what do you use to clean your stencil after each use?

    Same here. I'll be saving my pennies to try to get one the old fashioned way at some point. The build pics got me hooked.

    Hey Tom, would you be so kind as to give us a pic of a RetroSpec sideXside with a LP? Just for S&Gs? Thanks.
    And thanks for the thread; if it feels/sounds anything like it looks (and I'm sure it does), that is one amazing geetar!
