    Default Still at it....Occasionally..... The "White Budgie"

    Thought you might find this amusing.....I finished this a while back and the owner jogged my memory having posted some stuff of his band at Glastonbury festival....This was a really fun build - he wanted the edge markers and "f" holes to glow in the dark !!!! Click image for larger version.

    A short-scale (21") tenor version of that would rule!

    I have no doubt you would do an awesome short-scale white falcon tenor ... and that is the problem!

    I gotta find a way to get over to your side of the pond.
