I do like that lantern oil can guitar.  Likely a good idea to wait and decide on the electrics.  I have a fiddle started.  I think if I can get some design features done well, I will be able to play better.  Too hot to work on it today.  Around 35C.

Thanks Andries, glad you like the logo.  :-)
Shipping cost to the Netherlands is probably outrageous but if you want to order a shirt you can get them here:
