Wow! Just wo-oooow! This is a great build. One of my faves. The fingerboard, the box, the headstock, the tailpiece... You nailed it Steebos.

Thanks. Those are hobo symbols. I bought the fretboard from CB Gitty. The hobo symbols were already on there. I did burn dots on the side of it.

Love the grained/aged wood.  Interesting fret markers.

Very nice, Steebos.

Thanks dudes! I love it too. I can't put it down.

Yep!, love the look of this "Fine Fiddle"  :-)

That’s beautiful Steebos! A fine patina of coal, rust and age. I love it.
