Randy, I'm betting that one week from today, you will have it all tweaked and fall in love with your build. That's the beauty of building. You know it better than anyone and will easily figure out what is needed to make it sound great. It's all part of the process.

You sure nailed that one. The voice of experience! It sounds like crap! I need to work on the nut and bridge some, I think.

Randy. I usually don't worry too much with the first sounds. There is a lot of "tweaking" after you get it strung up. The first thing will be action adjustments and intonation. A day or two of tweaking and you'll likely fall in love with it.

It will be ready for strings in a few minutes! I am excited. Is it stupid to be feeling nervous right now about how it is going to play/sound? Haha

Thanks Randy.

It is currently my daily player. Have it tuned Open G and love playing old Son House tunes with  slide.

Look forward to hearing/seeing your.

Incredible sound! I hope mine sound half that good! Great work. It is gorgeous.

Thanks, Jim.

It has quickly become my daily player. The action from the nut is  just high enough  to  use a slide without banging frets, but low  enough to allow  easy fretting. I'm  liking it.

That sure has the nice rezo sound Tom, great job!

Here  is a link to  an audio clip of the metal body resonator. I recorded it  using a Yeti USB  mic.

I'm away from home at the moment, but will record a sample and post it soon.
