Congratulations, John. Well, almost anyway. Will it be done by tonight? I can't wait to see it in person!

I'm trying. I got distracted today.
The shop should smell like a Mad Dentists office by the time you get here.
However!
When you pull up the driveway, if I am kneeling with an on fire guitar before me, just turn around

Default 3/21/2011 8:30PM We have a singer!

WOW! The saddle is still real high. The nut is still high, string placement isn't set in stone as yet. Neck angle seems great. I tuned her up. WOW. I am pleased. Figerstyle has a surprising Sustain. Strumming, lows were not as interesting as the "deeper " treble. She Plays! I mean plays nice! HEEEEEEE
I'll let the neck settle in a week or so then start the final set up

I love it when you get giddy.

Congrats! I'll be looking to get my hands on that guitar at the McJam...

Hey John, love the body and that pyramid does seem to fit after all. It plays off the flat edge of the soundhole art very well, making it almost seem like a window.

All the McJammers will get a chance to meet and greet the guitar and the builder. I will be good for John to bring his autograph book so everyone can give him written reviews.

It's been a fun thread, John. With each guitar we learn new tricks of the trade. You did good.
