So here is my last entry in the building of the John Henry. I got a chance to visit my daughter and had her play it. She has her own repair shop in Brooklyn (brooklynlutherie.com) and she plays a 1937 National Duolian on stage. She said that it sounds more complex than a biscuit bridge guitar normally does and that she really likes the sound. She also said I got the set-up right this time. The neck is fat like a National and she liked the feel. This was done on an iPhone, so sorry about the quality. This is the kind of music she loves to play:

So thanks for looking, and see you next time.

Ed, it has been totally fun to follow this project with you and I'm kind of sorry to see it end. Beautiful guitar, superb craftsmanship and some pretty sweet pickin' on your daughter's part.

Shameless bump to get to the top for voting. Just listen to the video a couple of posts above this one
