    Well, I'm definitely not bored with the building threads, but I do like the idea of a thread that features just completed guitars (builds). So, how 'bout if I get things started. Here are a couple of my octave guitars:

    Here's the build thread for these octave guitars...although I didn't go into as much detail as som of the other folks around here: http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/luthiers-corner/4779-less-tall-octave-guitar.html


    And here are some pics of my Less Tall 1/2 scale mini guitars:

    And again, here are a few threads that show more details including some build details:

    John, AWESOME work, always enjoy seeing your guitars

    did you angle the PU cavities in the third guitar pictured or use the carve for your angle?
