Today is Guitar-Building Day

There is little that is more satisfying than spending a day alone in the workshop surrounded by various tools and the bits and bumps that go into a guitar.

Not to be a cheater, as I have built many from scratch, but I often use pieces from discarded or abused guitars and put them together with new pieces to form a true custom.  Also, I have been known to "sub-contract" the finish, as some of the paint jobs require much more professional equipment than I have in our small workshop.

However, it is always nice to have a day when one may see the tactile result of his labor.  Plus make some extra coin.
