Got a big round top craft box ebay special in the mail yesterday. Was gonna use it for a license plate reso. However it is a bit smaller than advertised and the bottom is split all the way through. Aggravating. Don't have time to find another box, so my Undercrown box will now host my dad's guit.

Monster build - made a bit of progress. Rejiggered the neck internals so the pickup could be adjusted. Gonna have to pfutz with the pickup cover now though. Went to the Home Despot and got some bits and bobs. Small hinge for a tail piece. All that remains is a trip to the office supply store for a white Sharpie marker (yes, they make em!) and final assembly.

Bought some ply and what I THOUGHT was a package containing two saw horses. Nope. One. Basement work table must wait.

Also got some extension springs. Mocked up my idea for one going through the tunnel of the little tart tins I have for some spring reverb. I think it's going to work! Sounded neat. One end to the tunnel, one end to the bolt holding the bridge w/piezo and I think it'll sound fun. We'll see. Back burner.
