I suffered a novice guitar builder set back after the last photo causing me to need some new wood from the supply house. The saga continues here and hopefully we'll all see some real progress in the coming weeks.

Dude. I stoked to see this. Some of your earlier post made me wonder if you were going to finish it by March. I hope you do.

@Paragone...no, I do it all. I just don't do anything particularly well.

@ThatGuy...With a mere 26 days left in the month, it's going to be tough, but I'm going to try.

I minored in wood working in college. in my senior year a fellow classmate convinced the professor to let him build a guitar for a project. we concentrated on furniture so it was a stretch. he ended up being allowed to do it, with the caveat that he had to build several of the tools as well. I remember him building special clamps, but i can't recall the other things he made. anyway it was one of the most beautiful guitars i've ever seen when he was finished. i hope yours turns out he same.

Thanks @Gavin, I just hope it doesn't implode once it's done.

while it would be a real downer if it imploded when you were done there would also be a comedic angle to it that might make it worth it.

@mackle, I respectfully disagree. I would likely weep and then burn the remains.

If you need larger than XL shirt - just add a note with your order about what size you want and we'll get it made. No shirts actually exist yet, so the pre-order system will allow us to get the shirts made that need to get made.
