Darren,

   I received one of your Keni Lee Signature builds today.  Excellent.  I have some good builds, but your precision, finish and craftsmanship is beyond my level.  Nice work, sir.

Blessings and good wishes.

Hey Darren, I just tried your belt sander fret dressing technique for the first time. You, sir, are a genius.

Thanks Big Daddy - You're the best! I found the YouTubes this morning and actually downloaded both to my CBG Instruction Folder. Thanks so much!

Darren:

Wanted to post some pictures of the CBG I made with you neck. Click to my pictures and you will see them. This thing is a little hot rod with the Stonehenge pick-up. Tiny box but has quite a bit of sustain. Will have a sound bite soon. Thanks again.

BTW ... Wait'll you see my idea for headstock! Hint: I'm gonna call my mojo "B. El Zibub" guitars. (Long evil laugh) The Diablo's will set it off I hope, but, I've also grabbed up some Punch, Monte Cristo and a few others to get started.

Dude, I have 6 regular, one large and two mini Diablo boxes ready to pay homage to your mentorship. (I'm gonna put distortion peddle guts in the mini's so they match the guitars). I'm still building up my tools. I have electrical, mechanical and plumbing tools already, so now I need the woodworking voodoo to get going. I been looking on Ebay for a small belt sander, rotary-tool/router and a saw just big enough to cut up to 3" wood. Any suggestions? Especially on any other tools you think I'll need.

Thanks man ...
