Hogan #15 has arrived!
After starting this project a couple years ago, it has finally arrived! Adrian Minarovic, known here as HoGo, completed #15, shipped it on Monday from Slovakia and it is now here. A replica of a '23 F-5 with a few custom features (radiused fretboard, Alessi tuners, James tailpiece, scooped extension...), it's a special instrument. Adrian is the consummate perfectionist and went out of his way in so many areas of this build. He was always really good about answering questions and would write very detailed and informative responses. It was definitely an educational process for me since this is my first experience with a custom build. I'd have to say that my first experience was a really good one, although I'll know for certain by tomorrow. Adrian said no opening up the package until it has acclimated for 24 hours, so I wait...
