Yea Gary. I`m enjoying this new challenge to build the sweetest sounding acoustic and electric three string guitar. I`ve got a few special project ideas to build. Looking forward to sharing ideas and how-to`s with you and all the other CBG`ers out there. And learn to play. Using a slide looks like fun.
