Very fine looking with a lot of "personality" in the building of it!... Great job!

Great looking keepsake!

Thanks UncleJohn and DougThorsvik! The coin at the base if the neck is a 10 peso piece from a short stint living in Mexico. The whole thing is really an old guy overindulging himself on a birthday. I had all this stuff and I started incorporating it in the build. Eventually photos and trinkets clogged the inside of the box and hurt the sound quality! I backed it off and tried to hit just decade bdays.

This is a well thought out design and well executed! A 10!!! Outstanding Rope!

Wow! Great looker with lots of nice details from the slotted head stock the strainer sound holes, bean can reso and that cross medallion (that I can not se in this photo.) Needs a rope for a guitar strap. ;)
