""Lovely Plate", at first sight I just seen a typical square  box type standard LPG build, and wasn't until I viewed it in full size, that I noticed the frame around it, "Cool Idea"  :-)"

CBG 4 String First

A few problems with frets on this one. ended up making it fretless. First time using a four string pick up or pick up period. It's all good though. Sounds good too.
