Comparatively big box, lots of space to work in. This ended up being a Lady's guitar (my friend Debbie), hence the extremely ornate corners (standard ornate brass
corners overlaid with the corners off of an antique silver picture frame), etc. She's a beauty. The guitar, I meant the guitar... Still waiting for photo opportunity of guitar and the matching amp and matching case that Debbie simply could not live without. Anyway. Guitar's got a Fishman acoustic humbucker from Musician's Friend at bridge and a Five Dolla Holla from MGB Guitars and Parts Supplier at the neck. Standard 2 pu's
1 vol/1 tone/jack wiring. Wood for neck/fret board/head from ReStore (Habitat For Humanity), this typing done on laptop from ReUse (also Habitat For Humanity), toilet paper for blowing nose from Dollar Tree, coffee from Folgers, bad photography done with dinosaur flip-phone from TracFone. And the reason(s) I don't have a new butt-dialer like every one else is I've heard the technique is hard to master, and with this antique phone I get 90 more day with every minutes card I buy, so my "service end date" is now up to December of 2024. Ain't that a hoot!

What are the sound holes?  They're cool.
