I really like the neck design and the use of colors in the fretboard. Nice!

Outstanding build and design! Clever use of vinyl.

Yup.  As Josh and Denbo stated.

Thank you for your kind comments Josh. I'm a little fuzzy on how to be sure that my return comments go to the right place. I've never participated on a forum or blog. I don't even know the difference is!

Comment by Robert Ellis on August 11, 2019 at 11:00am

Thanks Dennis. It looks like you've been at this for a long time. As a "1st Timer" it took me a while to figure out what Watts Corner was, but I'm on to it now!

Super build & nice workmanship. I like the use of the vynil.  I saw it on CB Nation TV Watts Corner, it's nice to see a close up, thanks for posting Robert.

Very nice, love the red and black fretboard, it goes with everything else.
