Your very welcome Gene... I love gits that are If you seen mine you know this... Seems like some become like a cookie cutter types which theres nothing wrong with that but those who use more imagination seem to produce more exciting guitars... I'm just so amazed that some of mine play as well as they It's an exciting new field of building your own guitar.. Don't get me wrong I love a good Fender or Les Paul... Just can't afford them... :)
