Thanks guys! I've definitely got the ball rolling now with the business. :D

Impressed as always brian. Where do you get a hold of roasted maple?
There is a wood supplier near me that has roasted maple, figured roasted maple, roasted ash, roasted birdseye maple and a few other varieties. I'm dying to try out roasted birdseye.

How do you like the "bridge" truss rod adjustment compared to the "nut" one?
It's easier to adjust, out of the way and doesn't compromise the headstock in any way anymore. I'll never ever go back to doing them at the headstock. Its just so much cleaner this way. :smoking:

Man Brian, your work has jumped to a new level the last year or so.
:wub:

Looks very nice Brian :yesway:

Why the 26" scale though? Something a bit longer to give more string tension, but not different enough to feel weird to guys used to 25.5" scales?
