Oil paint stripes still a bit sticky but I got the Abalone in without smearing. She sounds great! Box Bucker under my neck mount. Side sound hole. Good acoustic and electric!

Thanks Ambrose. I got another custom print from Gitty. It’s next up. ...

Thanks AGP. I THINK YOU’d like the kit. It fit together very well. And they use quality plywood. Very tight grained and strong. Yet it sounds good too.

Outstanding colourful artwork Dave!, have been thinking about the Gitty Custom Box Kit for some time now, this lovely build just might convince me purchase one :-)

Comment by Bob "Ambrose" Negus on Tuesday

That is a "Smokin" build Dave... beautiful!... ditto on Uncle John's 9.9s + imperial measurment!

Comment by Dave Lynas on Tuesday

Thanks Uncle John. I’ll post a sample soon. Blue finger notwithstanding...
