    Good stuff, Rocka so this must be the build you told me about.

    This really makes me want to start on my build. I've got hunks of sapele and ebony just waiting to get used. Still need a proper jointer. My other one broke on me, sadly.

    stop being a cunt. let people do and enjoy things. worst case scenario here is that he builds a crappy guitar that he learned a bunch of stuff while building. best case, he had a super fun time making a usable guitar.

    go for a walk or something.


    keep on killing it, rocka.

    Looking good man! I wish I had the time/workspace to try and build a guitar from near scratch like this! Also interested to see how you get on with the finishing!

    I'm looking forward to seeing the results, Rocka -

    It's looking good so far.
    All I can ask is that I suck a little less each time I pick up my guitar...

    This is the most composed guitar job any of us have seen you do. Whoever kidnapped Rocka and took over his account needs to let him go before we send Liam Neeson in.

    Yeah, this is weird. It's so... normal.
