    Cool, I started with a three string fretless cookie tin build in March of 2012. Done some CBGs, canjos, diddley bows and now the hubcap which was build #21. Fun hobby and every one is different.

    Not sure if the attachment is working trying to add via the app.

    Built a 3 string fretless, burnt fret marks in with a soldering iron.

    This is as built been tweaking since. Just swapped out the bridge for an eye bolt to lower the strings a little and spaced out the top and bottom strings closer to the edge of the neck.

    Currently tuned in open F, working on Folsom Prison Blues.

    Looks good to me. Here are my two favorite builds so far and one I built for Rocky who puts on the Eagle Field Drags.

    Did a similar one with an old 409 Valve cover. The old style donor lamps are getting harder to find.
    Love the pinstriping. I really need to get some on my lamp.
