Great to meet you yesterday at the PA CBG Fest. I started an album but it will probably take me a few days to get all the pics uploaded since CBN only lets you upload 10 per day.

Hi there sparky ,or is it The JOKER ! thanks for the kind comments ,if you plan on doing one like that ,the trick is to take as thick a plexiglass you can get 5mm or more, i had to do a lot of filing down of the frets, so the string don´t clatter to much while playing, the more thickness on the P Glass the deeper your frets can go for variation on the play, my dean stick was olso twisted so it was even more work,just so you know ! thanks again and good luck on your undertaking.

 It looks like "Uncle Lou" doesn't currently have plans to play anywhere before 15Nov2015. He does bow hunt, so I thinks what is taking up his free time. I'll keep ya informed.   Preston

So did you use a piezo rod combined with the pre-amp in your Lacewood 6 string? I've been contemplating that idea for a build too.
