Thanks Richey and Will! Sorry Richey, no progress pics but neck measures 1-1/4" at nut and 1-1/2" at the body. This is stained Will, photo does not do it justice, the grain has really cool pattern

Very nice!  Burnt or stained fret board?

Comment by Richey Kay on August 5, 2015 at 3:43am

Wow wow wow. That is awesome! Great work. Would love to see some construction pics for the neck, if you have any?

Thanks Unc, Pick, Sean, and Dave! The cans give a really cool sound, and look cool too
