Just finished the set-up on my first kit build. It came from John Hall at Blues Creek Guitars, and I couldn't be happier (esp with the way it sounds) and how helpful John was every time I had questions. I have two pages of mistakes I made that I'm hoping will go away on the next one I build. I also need to thank Freeman Keller; that man has some real patience with newby questions, plus some great threads of how he does all his different builds. It's pretty inspiring to think I can screw up as many things as I did and still end up with a very playable guitar. How many people start out with glueing the neck block in the mold upside down? Mebbe now I'll remember it's a flat top guitar, not flat bottom.

Appreciate any and all who answered my many beginner questions. Roy

Great looking guitar. What are your plans for your second! I have miss glued blocks. Not on my first, but it had a Spanish heel.
