Cheers. Doc they're pretty cool like. I'm sure you'll enjoy your build when you're done. I'm on building another at the minute. Decided to tackle cutting the plate for a Pup. It went better than expected.

Nice playing Joe. I'm getting around to building my first LPG. I'm with unc on those Mississippi plates, they are one of the nicest ones. Thanks for posting.

Thanks very much guys. I couldn't play a thing before I started building them last year. Now I can't stop picking one up to have a noodle on the strings.

I've got a few plates from late 70's John for making some new ones. American plates are sooo much nicer than anything we've got  or had on this side of the pond.
