I hope I doing this correct. I want to tell all that after over 1 1/2 years of fighting cancer that I am finally building my next project. It should be ready by the end of August 2018. I appreciate everyone who has commented on my instruments. For the next one think 8 string. God bless you all.

Hi Dan. Thanks for the friend request. Glad to. Boy, that guitar is pretty! I didn't see it until I hit "full size". Great craft and contrasts in the wood. Bet it sounds good too.

Dan, the shield box itself is a work of art!  As a CBG, amazing!  Well done!

Hello, I'm sure you could sell them. Some folks sell from here at CBN, their own website, or on Facebook. I sell mine on Ebay, and I see them on Etsy as well. Really just a matter of where you want to advertise. Beautiful work.

Hi Dan.  I like your builds.  You and your Mrs. make a nice looking couple.  It is good to have you for a CBN friend.
