Thanks John, took a break from building and playing. Nerve stuff and trigger finger, starting to play again. I really like the 17 to 22 1/2 . strings are important when i use regular guitar strings I tune down 1/2 to a whole step down. easier on the fingers and voice.

Thanks Dave, the pictures a little flat it much brighter. the bracing is all scrap from Parlor tops.

How you doing, Ross.  Great inside the box work.  Love these.  Highest 9s.  Makes me want to do try some combined are and uke or small cbg.
