This could be git related or not. So, what's on your workbench at the moment?

I have 4 scarf joint necks in different stages of work.

A 25" scale pine 5 string neck for a Banjo-Res, A 25" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Strat-Res build, A 24 & 1/2" scale Red Oak neck for my 6 string Double Cut Tele build and a 27" scale 6 string Baritone Conversion neck for a Modern Strat body I have.

My living room. Still decking for Christmas. Have 14 hours into the main tree. A few more to go for finishing up. Tree is wired to the wall behind it in two places. Only way to hold up all this glass. Have two dinners to cook for. Get a good jump on the tonight. Man I LOVE this holiday. 

Yep. That 'Glider' sitting on the couch. Always time to play. 

Well done BR, we got nobody coming this year so here is our effort...... Sad. Oh, we got some lights out front though.

Anyway enjoy your Christmas and New Year.


We just turn on the porch light, it represents the Christmas star. Good enough! Merry Christmas and happy New year to you!

Merry Christmas y'all, and to all a good night!

Woah! you're definitely getting more in the spirit than I do!

Still have some cooking to do and I feel this year I'm the one running like a headless turkey...

Oh well... the 25th will still come in the same number of days as it always does.

Merry Christmas to y'all! And may Santa bring you lots of good things.

Since the wife and I have been trying to clean out the new house for us to move into, we haven't had time or energy to decorate.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Just finished up a license plate git Saturday for the extended family white elephant gift exchange yesterday.  Sounded decent, probably about twice as beefy as it needed to be. 24" scale, piezo rod pickup, quartersawn box from lumber I took out of a monster oak that fell at our old house.  


Nice looking guitar MadGomer! Hope whoever got it plays the blue out of it! 

Tasty git.

Took a total of 16 hours to get the main tree up. Now to spend the next two days making it look like I clean my house. :) Wiped out about ten pounds of potatoes. They are really bad tasting. But the polenta marinara is as good as if it came from Italy itself. Hopefully the potatoes will be the only thing I mess up this year. 

Finally finished my license plate guitar.
