You should post more

I love watching your builds. I just don't usually comment because I don't have anything productive to add to the conversation.

But yeah, stunning work as always!

Keep them coming, dude. The building scene in here has died recently

I think the coolest thing about your stuff is that you manage to get the quality on each build consistent, to the point of being practically identical, and can still tear through one in a couple of days.

It looks like there's a huge moth pattern just behind the tailpiece holes. Seriously stunning guitar

Now that Mint mentioned the Moth pattern, I cannot look away. Beautiful work man, I'm more than jealous.
