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.

Hmm need to learn how to post photos

when you get a response box, there's an Icon (2nd from left) at the top of the response box.

Just started my next build.I'm trying a couple new things on this one. New for me anyway.

Good job.

I've been insanely busy over the last few weeks... or is it the last few months.

Anyways, I did get parts from China and decided to begin a new build. I've got almost everything I need to get started. And I bet you won't be able to guess what it's going to be... Then again, you probably will :-)

Working on #41. I dont really like it.... kinda hokey

Doesn't look hokey to me. You going natural for the box or stain or paint?

Buyer wants it like it is. I have this same box with great patina that i got at an estate sale for $1. He didnt like the look so he paid $30 for this one off ebay.

Buyer's always right. Then another buyer will pickup the other one. Haha

these are nice boxes.  A friend gave me one which I made into a 4 string fretted.  The box had seen a few better days so I gave it a golden oak stain which complemented the aging beat up look.  the top on mine was about 1/4" thick so I added the Gitty uke pick=up and it made it really sound great, even though it was still pretty good acoustically.

Starting #41

That's a good looking box.
