this was an attempt to salvage a good necked guitar from a damaged splintered bridge and internal rib missing. it sort of humms when played with vigor. good to practice on needs refining though i have kinda given up the idea of screws in the bridge. you can see the glue risidual is unsanded and the gutar will need paint eventualy. the combination holds electric strings what a rackit when strummed! joseph if you show this to a luthier tell him i used the wood from the sliding drawers to solidify the under side of the top sound board on the inside used titebond III i love plucking away on this guitar and will do so untill i learn to strum. now ya know i really am just beginning.

Joe,
Great start. Keep up on the good work. You will be amazed at what you can learn about stringed instruments by doing what you are doing. I also like the bass guitar you did.

Looks good to me Joseph. Just a note I think they sell tools and supplies for guitars on Grizzly.com
