    Beautiful work Drew, doesn't look like a first effort based on your pictures! I especially like your headstock treatment. How about a picture of the back? What's the scale length on that dred?

    Thanks man! To be ultra-transparent, this is a StewMac kit that I just added some personal touches to. I have some hobby woodworking experience, and if you held a gun to my head I could make a playable guitar from scratch, but I wanted to start with some known quantities to understand the materials at this level. There is an A5 scratch build on my workbench, though!

    Made a couple of slip-in ebony capos for bandmate's Larry Pogreba custom doubleneck steel guitar made from an old yard sale mahogany water ski. Oldest position marker is an 1803 US nickel. Double nut made from the aluminum runner on the ski bottom. Sounds 1956 with ancient teisco gold foils thru a 56 supro amp......

    A break from my mandolin build to finish this tele project: hide covered face, neck pickup ring not yet installed. I still need to string up to test and setup.

    A cafe member requested that I test my wood burning and staining skills for this custom armrest. A before stain and after.

    Drew, nice job, especially for a first go at it! Spencer, I’m not an armrest guy, but you’re making me consider one...
