I know you were all anxiously awaiting an update about this, but I found a strap. I wanted something that contrasted with the dadrock vibe of the guitar and found this cool Marimekko-style fabric thing on the Mother Mary clearance page on Reverb.

I think it fits the handmade theme of the guitar nicely. The leather tabs are super heavy. I really had to wrestle it on.

Nice. A contrast it is. Congrats on the completion.

Another quick clip. I wrote the main part first and it stands up ok on its own live, but I want to put some acoustic under it for our recording. I looped it while I figured out the chord voicings I wanted, then looped the chords once I got a handle on them and re-played the part.

That looks great.

Also, your "very slow" build thread has come together in the amount of time that like three of my projects have sat untouched :fp:

Thanks. It came together faster than I expected. I’ve had bicycle builds that have taken a year +, so that’s what I’m used to.
