Re: JS6 - pics. Thinking of NOT sanding it down anymore...
Thanks for the link Frantick. I just can't justify dropping $1500 on a guitar. IF I somehow miraculously came across one for $1000, I'd probably do it. There was one on the auction site a few months back that was beat up, and it went for about $1000. I had only talked myself into spending $800 on that one due to the condition. I'm going to build one from a block of solid Honduran mahogany (already got the wood and the template). I've got a 540-R and a JS700 to help me match the shaping. I got hooked up with the wood for free (a friend works for a wood supplier that used to supply to Gibson and Fender. the blank he got me is NICE). I'll wind up dropping probably $500-$600 in a neck and parts, but it will be fun project. Plus, my dad will help me with it, and it will be something cool to have when he's gone (he's nearly 70, so I'm starting to have "he's not gonna be around forever" feeling, you know).
