Thanks Jerry!

Yes I found it a good way to have a hollow neck lap steel guitar solving the reinforcement needed for the string tension. I took off the fretboard, I´ll use it something else for sure!

Leo, you have the old cogs turning in my head... inspiration!! I’m sure there’s a couple ratty old classical necks around here somewhere,.,,
