Howdy all! I've been working on my first electric guitar build for 5 years now. Some life got in the way, some nasty tear out on Sapele, and some lack of motivation and money. Finally though, i have started working on the build again and have made great progress. I am eager to learn from all you talented folks and hopefully share some of my knowledge as well. Aside from the lutheiry hobby i also, play guitar, and ride motorcycle. If anyone is ever in the Conover area and wants to visit a GREAT exotic hardwood warehouse let me know. Its called WestPenn Hardwoods (its a candy store experience for sure), and once you see it you'll want to live there. I'm very lucky to live so close to this establishment.
