Thanks Dave!  High praise coming from you, my friend!  You too, Rob!  Thanks much!  (A longhorn pick is brilliant!)

That is one of the most awesome guitars I've seen in a long time!!!

Play “Don’t Fence Me In”. Use a Longhorn Pick.

Way cool Rev. Wow!

Thanks AGP!  I normally don't like relegating playable CBG's to permanent wall hanger status.  This one has been fermenting in my brain for a while now, and will replace a working CBG currently hung on our wall.  It was a fun little project!

Cool looking collection of Plates Rev!, the strings used are certainly one way of hardening up the callous's on the finger tips!, and even though unfretted, I would presume there would be a bit of Fret Buzz, and I'm also assuming it would tuned YOW. :-D

But seriously It'a a fine looking Wall Hanger and great Conversation Piece  :-)

Thanks Uncle John!  I need to post my playing "It Hurts Me, Too".....  ;-)

That is pretty cool. Long scale traveling 3.

States of significance in my life; either my home or where my sons went to college (Texas A&M, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology).  Rustic barbed wire from a woods in Indiana.  Probably ought to wear welder's gloves when playing this bad boy!
