    Yeah I didn't see that until the pics got blown up. It was some sawdust from a tripod leg. I was bummed too.

    I should have put it on a stand or at least taken the packing box out from underneath. I played it for ten minutes right off the highway and felt I had tempted fate long enough, and didn't really want to over handle it.

    LOL!

    Since I can hear the difference a Braz fret board makes, do you think I will tell a difference when I eat Sushi using Braz chopsticks? :D

    In that this is Alex's forum, why not ask him directly?

    You can easily PM him if you wish.

    How do I save threads? There's tons of good info in this section, and since
    I'm just about to start my very first build, I really, really need it.

    Just my luck; go out and get a bunch tools and a bunch of wood and then
    BAM, somebody cuts off the power. siiiigggghhhhhh:hmm:
