        My latest Strat* ax creation is close to being
 completed. I have all the pieces that only need to be assembled. I had a few flaws in the body dye job and
 sanded them out. Once I re-dye the back side of the ax I can begin applying the clear coats.
     The young man I'm building it for came back into town for a while, and he was able to stop by my place and check out the progress.
    I had a real good time watching his reaction to
 seeing and feeling the parts that are near completion.
   He has plans to be a married man by the time I see him again..which may be around Christmas time.
   The ax will be done by then.. whoopie ! Big%20smile
  I will post some pictures of the ax when it is finished.
 This one is a elegant instrument, with a very nice
 classic guitar look. Building it gave me more ideas for
 my next project.
     For those of you who are following this thread...
 I am having a great time working on these projects !
  I'm blessed to be in the position that allows me to
 build some instruments that will out live my time on
 the this rock floating through space. It's fun & cool !
  Stay tuned... this show ain't over. Wink

Toad...
 
Glad to hear!
 
You build beautiful instruments... the world doesn't need more mass produced clones... it needs what you create.

         I'm now shooting the clear-coats on the new
 project. I made a discovery about my method to apply
 the dyes which will help me with future projects.
   I will explain my method in a later post when I get some photos of this ax for you'all to see. It's a beauty !!!

          Santa did his thing today. I passed my latest
 guitar project off today to It's new player. I was even
 treated to a mini-concert of sorts. A truly fun day for
 both of us !Big%20smile
      It turned out to be a real tone monster. WOW !
   I will post some pictures real soon.
 I had lots of fun today !

Ya know...

Practice practice practice...
get increasingly good,
over much time,
work very hard to develop skills,
to create art and master a craft,
to remain gainfully employed as
a talented, live performing and studio recording artist.

So...

Drums, perhaps?... along comes drum machines.
Keyboards, Bass, Strings, Horns, Orchestra, perhaps? ... along comes MIDI.
Vocals, perhaps? ... along comes horrible AutoTune.

Well, lead guitar is still pretty, safe, right? .....Well, perhaps not!

As cool as technology can be, it also keeps screaming
"Yo humans, don't bother being good at doing anything involving those practiced, learned and developed, finely tuned skills".

Check this out!

                 

Sometimes, life just keeps smacking Ya upside the head
reminding us that... Life Is Not Freakin' Fair!

~Geno

WHAT.  THE.  HELL.    LOL
 
  
Geno ... I'm revising my earlier post.
I didn't get to look into this further but I think this is
an elaborate April Fool's Day joke...
 
I went back and clicked on the reviewer's link, and scanned down the review...
as detailed and legit as it seemed to be on the surface, all the
posts seemed to think it was a spoof.
 
At second glance - all that functionality, at that price point - naaah!
