    Just giving this thread a bump for the new year. Thanks to all that have helped Pete with this. I think we are about 500 or so short of our goal

    Hi guys! We’re drawing close i believe. I picked the neck and board last week and saw a body shot with paint!

    I’ll unveil pics once it’s completed to keep the element of surprise!

    @Peanut73 please don’t post shots if you have them!

    Emailed with Scott the other day about inlay material so I’d guess he’s prepping the board for frets...!
