Doin the freight train boogie with my new Gitty box kit custom printed with my blues train painting. MGB Box Bucker under her hood. Sounds great acoustic and brash with a slide electric. Tune EBE for the low rattler freight. Pine bridge, Ebony finger board. Aspen neck.

Thanks Thorsten. Been a whirlwind in the thorn trees. Two builds born the same day. Equinox gifts from the fates.

Nice work!

Thanks AGP, thanks Ambrose, thanks Pick. Final coat of varnish last night. I’ve found Min Wax rub on poly varnish does not smear Gitty’s print at all. Works good. Crylon spray paint does dissolve in the act of wiping on the poly over the paint job. I like the result however. It takes about three coats till no spray paint shows on your application rag.
