    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.

    Those are beauties, Jay! I love the wood in both. They look so simple, but are probably not. The tops look relatively thick. Is there bracing under the bridges?

    Not on these Ted they are open back, that is why the top is so thick. I was real surprised how loud they were when done.

    I got a lot of bloody stumps while stringing up

    Thanks everyone

    Ouch, yes I could see that there's a lot of wire going on there. Are you doing these from someone elses plan or based on your own designs?
