    Nice. I love simple guitars and yours turned out really nice. Most people's early builds have a really botched up finish, yours looks great. I didn't know Warmoth made a neck with a headstock like that. Did you have any trouble getting the floyd setup and intonated? Sometimes they are tricky.

    I built a hollow body Les Paul recently using acoustic guitar type construction. I bent the sides and used perfling to bind it all together. It was a really popular build on the forums. Looks like this inside

    Really difficult to bend that tight horn.

    Here's the top for it

    Here's some super boring video of bending the sides.





    Alright I've bored the Jeep crowd to tears. Better get back on topic.

    It's a NOS Kramer neck that I got from NY. No trouble with intonation...Took my time and a lot of careful measuring before mounting the bridge.
    Yep.

    heh. not my house. even if the downstairs toilet was the first toilet installed in the house. outhouse prior to indoor. circa the 50s. the 1850s.

    but, in general, yes, the toilet markings are a sneaky good way to date a house.

    as for garages, mine is less than a year old, so still in progress. clear span, 24x20, 8' ceiling. single 8.5' sliding barn door on right side. enough room to store my jeep, and a place for my wife to park her car.

    That's very nice wally. Sure looks well built to stand the test of time.

    Good looking building. Does it have a staircase to the top floor?
