Thanks very much Ambrose! With the neck pretty much done except for minor lefty to righty conversion adjustments, it came together quick. Look for it in future Slingers videos.

Reckon you got this spot on Doug. Purposeful with just the right amount of character!

Thanks again Brian! I was hoping the big CB would complement a longer neck with a long headstock.

Great look to it, Doug!!!

Thanks Uncle John! The Arturo Fuente King B box is big and flat; perfect for a bass. Not going for fancy; just wanted a clean player. Aaron is going to be happy and it will mean every Slinger will be playing cigar box or license plate guitars for our Spokane Folk Festival virtual and hopefully live performance in November.

That's a very good looker.
