I'm probably going to ask Dan to add one to mine, but it will be hidden and only seen with a mirror (which means printed backwards, too).

Thanks, everyone.

Now that Paul's is done I can concentrate my efforts to getting Daren's done. (won't be long now)

Hakuna Matata. You told me mine would take a little longer because of the neck work. Is it done yet?

Thanks for sharing, it's nice to see the DS shop developing new devices for O enhancements. And as a residue of this project there is still the perfectly fine MS sitka top, which I imagine may serve well for a quick emergency restoration job in the future.

YVW.

Nah, that top is worthless for restorations. It's destined for the trophy wall along with all the rest.

I'm at the point where if I'm going to go to the trouble of re-topping a guitar, there's no substitute for torrefied wood. (yeah, it's that good)

Very impressive Dan. I've watched this restoration as keenly as the others and I've been loving the journey.

Keep 'em coming!
