Wow!! So impressive & satisfying to see what you've done here. It's hard to believe it's the same neck.

I've been on this forum long enough to know how all this stuff is done but actually doing it is another thing entirely. Mad, mad skills!!!

Wow!
I‘ve already wondered what happened with that neck!
Nice to see it ”whole“ again! And it indeed turned into such a beautiful guitar! Congrats! Have fun!

Beautiful work indeed.
Matching headstock + B&B is my obsession. What a beautiful instrument.

Thanks for saying that the headstock repair looks like pro work, but the price seems really steep!

Always interesting to see how a project I've worked on is described down the line. I think that the only original pieces are some of the neck and 2/3 of the chrome plates?

Oh jeez. I really hate to see your work abused for profit like that.

I hesitate to ask how much you sold it for when you were done resurrecting it. I have a feeling there's a bit of a discrepancy.
