Today, I strung up my first F5, in the white. The experience of hearing it in my hands was tremendous. While it has its cosmetic flaws, the sound is so much better than what I have been playing. I have learned a lot on the quest so far.
Mainly, I wanted to send a big thanks to everyone who has given me advice and helped me at every turn. Without your assistance, I would have never got this far. So, from one novice builder to so many others with more experience--thank you so much for your help and patience. Its been an incredible journey so far. Now, on to the finishing process.
You all are an inspiration!
