  1. maybe you guys will have some feedback, not really getting any in the other forum. let me know what you think, this is an in progress lefty 4 string. also the body on the bottom is for a right handed project that i'm going to sell when it's completed. the sketches are just the body styles that i plan to be making in the future. thanks

    Looks neat. Is that bocote?

    The neck pocket looks a little short. Will this be a set-neck instrument?
  4. thanks man

    it's a bocote top, 4 pieces, but matched up nicely. mahogany mid body, and a pau ferro back. it will be a set neck.

    Nice and creative! The headstock shape is a real eye grabber (and probably to some extent, a cord, pantleg, and mike stand grabber - be careful!) :)
