Thank you Richard, those are wonderful words of encouragement and I take great joy in receiving them. Beaming from ear to ear I am now! Thanks so much and I hope you have a great weekend.

Bear :o)

Triple play on the tri-cone, good stuff! That is one good size guitar, you seem to handle it comfortably.  You seem at one with it, it’s a great fit! You can’t beat the tones and you play it so smooth!

Thanks Derek. I agree 100%. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for the kind words my friend. :o)

Nice triple play Bear. That guitar is a keeper too!

Haha great pic Nancy. Just so everyone is clear though, I’m the growly Bear in the pic and NOT one of the teddy bears haha. Must. Keep. Tough. Image! Must. Keep. Tou... oh who am I kidding. Maybe slightly, minimally, in a minuscule way similar to a teddy bear if you count the face fuzz. :D

Thanks Nancy. I’m not a teddy bear though I’m a big growly Bear haha. Really appreciate your kind words and glad that you like the guitar. Hope you’re well and thanks again :o)

Thanks Andries. Glad you enjoyed the video. Not sure I’m anything that Eric Clapton is but thank you for the comparison. Made me smile a smile from ear to ear.

 Thanks Danny. Glad that you like it so much. I have a folder in the photos section here on CBN that has build stages in it but it’s not a neck through. The neck is attached to a block that runs inside the box from left to right. There are also two truss poles inside for strength and to support the sound well that the cones sit atop. Hope this answers your question but the photos folder will show lots more detail. :0)

The second one reminded me of LaGrange by ZZ Top. I love the sound of that tri cone. Does it have a through the box neck?
