    Route 66 Guitar (Video added)

    I thought I had posted these but hadn't so now that my internet speed is back up here they are

    This is the new Route 66 guitar. Found out real fast that I had under priced them as I sold 4 within the first 2 hours of posting them on FB.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Way cool, Jay! I love the look. Do you get a reso tone out of the sign? Did you ever get your pup winder running good?

    Thanks Ted and yes you do get a kind of Reso tone. Wish I knew how to play so I could demo. The winder works Great the operator on the other hand needs some work and more time.

    No not yet Paul. The store that has it is stringing it up and then we are getting a Pro that plays 5 shows a day there to make a demo video so I can post it here.

    Yes I am Ted I am using some of the smaller boxes for them. I also have a batch of Diddly-Bows in the works as soon as I get the winder under control.
