Yaron,

I can't believe this was your first guitar building project. IT LOOKS AMAZING. Really... very impressive.

I just bought a kit to work from for my first build project, but your first time FROM SCRATCH guitar puts my little attempt to shame! How did you get the courage? Did you have previous woodworking skills?

GREAT JOB

Hello,

I was looking at some amateur's realization, and i got stuck on your guitar.
I really like the global shape and the bridge details and so on.
Proportion are simply perfect.

I'm working on my third guitar project and i would like to be as inspired as you.

Best Regards.
