@tv101

Thanks Tony. I didn't really choose the complexity of the build, it just kind of evolved with wood I had available and I certainly learnt a lot during the process. Yes, I like the f holes, it looks like they belong there, rather than positioned to cut out nail holes and iron stains. As for the caravan, it doesn't lean too badly, we just can't shut any of the doors now. I might as well use them to build an extension to my hut.

Thanks Russ, I'll get started on proper one now, I've got a Bailey kit for the next one.

@robin Excellent! It looks great Robin, I can’t wait to see what you do with the kit.

Thanks Boo, I'm keen to get started on the next one, but my fingers were f f freezing out in my garage today, it's going to be a bit awkward wearing mittens.

@robin It was for me too in my garage today. Painting doesn’t go that well in these cold temperatures.

That’s a lovely build, well done. I like the neck joint, very smooth.

Thanks Peebee, that shape was a bit accidental, I had to keep cutting away to get rid of a notch I dug with the router. Now that I've played it a bit, I might round off that corner on the back of the body, not that I'm fretting up at these dizzy heights very often.

Robin, glad to hear that your feeling better, you must be stoked how the guitar has turned out, let us know how it sounds and does it sound as expected?

Thanks Steve, thats six weeks since surgery, I'm not up to full strength yet, but feeling great. I'm so pleased with the guitar and sounds good to me. I'm not a player though, still learning, so can't really do it justice.
