    Default Octave F....sorry I couldn't find old thread

    Geese it didn't give me a chance to edit title...SORRY was what was meant to be said...This baby has been around the shop awhile. Im looking to get her done in a few weeks. I'm tempted to keep her but all my friends say "oh yeah, we've heard that 50 times". What the hell do they know (except me). Has everything I want, and wait till you see the custom tailpiece and bridge I have designed for it. On the cafe soon so keep an eye out.

    I fixed the title for you. I have a hard enough time getting rid of instruments I buy. If I was building them I'd probably really have a problem not keeping them. Nice wood.

    It has F holes. Still have a ways to go on finish build and polish but you can at least see the color.

    It has a 1 5/16" nut and a 22 1/2" scale. It also has a K&K pickup on the endpin, a zero fret and a 3 3/8" body depth, also a varnish finish and a compound radiused fretboard...that should take care of most the questions. What history is there as far as how long ago were these made? I saw one about 20 years ago and played it a bit.
