    Re: Building my 2nd Guitar

    Beamer, that is absolutely astounding! I don't know if I would have believed it if I hadn't been watching all these weeks. What a beautiful looking and sounding instrument!


    I was sitting here grinning like a Cheshire cat while you were playing, just knowing how great you must feel that you accomplished something so challenging and it turned out so well. BTW, you bend those strings pretty good, too.


    Congratulations man. I'm proud of you and honored that we were able to share in the process.

    Re: Building my 2nd Guitar

    Awe heck - thanks, fellas. It's been a long road but I truly did enjoy all of it (except maybe the finishing .... i hate finishing). It came out better than I expected it to. It's got a few warts, but those just add to the character -- they're purely aesthetic. It SOUNDS great.

    I need to get it on the good amp and mic up for a decent sound recording so you guys can hear the real voice of this thing. Soon... soon as i re-grow the skin on my fingers. I've been playing the thing all day

    Thank you guys for supporting me. The only reason I can build this stuff is because of the knowledge I gained by hanging around with this group. We all helped and elevated each other over the years and that's what got me to this point. I can't wait to jump to the next one!

    Totally AWESOME

    That was - what - 10 months?

    What an awesome guitar.

    I loved the entire thing and the finishing was tremendous.

    After the electrical is fixed - you will need to play some more for us.

    FANTASIC - postings - just totally cool.
    Art and Creativity - Collide with the Functionality of CNC - priceless

    As noted earlier on YouTube, excellent job!

    I'm sure you've seen/heard Tommy Emmanuel, but when comes to finger picking, he's not human.

    I am at a loss for words here. That turned out so beautiful. When I saw you play it it dang near brought a tear of joy to my eye. The amount of work you put in to not only build it but to do the videos as well is amazing. Thank you for sharing this with us. That is truly a Masterpiece.
