A good friend gave me a '67 TN plate from Washington County [where we lived for 9 years]. It is paired with a box made from pallet wood. I tried a pine neck for the first time, and a 5 gallon stir-stick fingerboard. The stir stick was about 1/8" too narrow for the neck. A piece of copper pipe was vintage-ized with a vinegar solution and used for the tail.
