    Thanks man, looking forward to setting it up and adding some finishing touches. Had a full evening of stuff on yesterday so not much happened after the demo.

    Cheers Frankie, I'm keen to move onto the next iteration for sure. Hopefully I'll get around to doing the groundwork for that in the next few weeks, will keep you posted.

    Hah yeah, you can tell the guitarist you meet day to day by the eye rolls :P
    It's been a long haul for sure, but I started this Diary on the 12/3/2019 and gave myself a year, so I'm calling in on schedule and relatively on budget.

    How much is a very interesting question. I've no idea, if I priced in the hours spent it'd be ridiculous. Assuming I get to the stage of building multiples during a run I'd like to be able to sell them for between $1000 - $1500 depending mostly on hardware.

    I'd be very interested to hear peoples opinions on value for this and proposed future builds.

    I would not be opposed to selling this to fund the next run, we'll see.

    Cheers Brendan. I don't think I've quite come to terms with it being together yet, looking forward to getting it sorted out and some nice strings on it.

    Real nice job mate. I hope to get back and finish up my scratch build in a few weeks time but this is next level with the whole design process as well.

    Cheers Woltz, I noticed you'd gone a bit quiet. Following along with your build certainly help push me to keep going with this.

    Yeh I've been focusing on trying to make a career change happen which has consumed all my spare time. But I hope to get back into my builds around the end of March. Particularly the Thinline which just requires painting, polishing and assembly.

    Well it's pretty much done. I'm sure I'll tinker with it a bit as it settles down.

    Pic dump for you.
