Wow, this will be BIG!!! John and I thought our 16.75" current build was big, but this is going to make it look like a 000.

I love the woods. A Hickory neck! My goodness.

I am terribly intrigued!!!

Have FUN

Interesting build, but am I the only one thinking this is going to be a very heavy guitar?

Heavy Guitar? You must have never played a 5 string resonator banjo with a bluegrass tone ring. But heavier neck = more sustain and heavier back and sides = more sustain and tone.
