    Hmmm, the serķa number of the guitar should provide the information of when it was made. How many people still have the original paper work of guitars from the 50s 60s 70s...etc

    You will need to check the laws in Spain and then of the country its arriving in...

    Yes in theory a serial number should be enough.. But you should check first as each country is doing its own thing in how they enforce it.

    The nature of trying new things is sometimes reckless. My condition is a little more complex to put it gently lol

    I'm hoping all these experiments can bring you down to NAMM in Anaheim sometime

    Cheers... Now that would be something wouldn't it :)

    Mmm I think probably over half of the DIYers are like this at least SOMETIMES. For example, I started my first tube amp, then built the Revibe, now I'm working on the ac30 all before I even finished the cab for the first project. It's totally *** backwards, but we're just having fun, following our whims and stuff like that

    Exactly , thank you [thumbup]

    Im not hurting anyone.. The very worst thing that can happen is that it doesn't work and I learn not to do it again.. And then in the future when I see the next crazy builder who says they are going to try the same thing I can actually say from true experience NO that doesn't work.. Here I have proof :D

    People said my half and half wouldn't work (or at least warned me against it).. It did.. over a year later it still works and has not warped or none of that... Now I know it can be done and is cool...

    Why else do humans do things... Cos we can :P

    I'm wondering if the grain running the other direction wouldn't want to resonate sympathetically with the neck? No?


    Im not sure it will make all that much difference. We will find out when I finish it I guess... [rolleyes]

    I know people must think im a bit bonkers and I probably should have at least waited to finish the Korina one first and see what happens.. But I have to do these things, I cant help it :) And its not like im building this for anyone specifically.. Its just stuff I want to try out.
