Next build moving along on schedule (there is no schedule )

I guess I like fiddlin' with the headstock. This one is cascading. Also, left the weathered sides on the neck to make it look more backwoods. And... homemade tuners.



Don't rant me, bro.(LOL) I'm just riffing on headstock design free form as a nubee neophyte can't get the right step right.

Just finished my first guitar tonight

Posted on January 22, 2016 at 7:30pm 10 Comments

its a 3 string, oak neck. Can't wait to learn how to play it! I play electric bass and sing some, but I've always wanted to play slide. Love Ry Cooder, Leo Kotke, ZZTop, John Lee Hooker, BB King. Really just saying hello here, it's my first post as well.



Adding pics when I can figure it out!
