    sans solo...wasn't that the guy in star wars?

    After almost a year it is done. I am very happy with the result especially because of the issues I had with lacquer. I also had a tear out when routing the headstock to correct thickness so I had to make another neck.
    This is the first guitar that is not going to stay with me and I am a bit sad because I really like it but I know it is going to good hands and it will be played a lot.
    Here is one before shot and a couple of shots from yesterday.

    Well, I'm calling these done, so I suppose I'm eligible to post them in this thread. :)

    These are my first two builds, just completed a couple of weeks ago. The build thread is here if anyone would like to see it.

    lp3.JPG lp2.jpg lp1b.jpg Here's one I did for a mates birthday present. (A bit late but better late than never) Lockwoods Analine dyes with some stewmac transtint colour. The lockwoods red faded really fast and more than I expected. I'll get the heads up on wether it sounds any good tommorow.[

    @SlingBlader & @fatdaddypreacher I would have finished it much sooner but life got in the way. Then we decided to build a big 560sq/ft deck out back (the figured if i could build a guitar then a deck must be easy)
