Wow! This sweet guitar has gone the distance. I built this one with a neck that once the strings are loosened, allows the neck to fold under the body. That way, it can be stowed under the seat on the plane and count as a "Personal Item" instead of carry on. So, this guitar flies for FREE! I've taken it on four Outward Bound expeditions down the Green and Colorado rivers in Utah. It boasts a thin single coil pickup for a spanking sound. My 12 year old students in June loved it as did the 60 year old Veterans in October. Also, a senior stepped on it when it was in my dry bag and all that happened was the strings broke. Any other guitar would have snapped at the neck! Maybe I should build more of these. The difficulty lies in the hinge. I have to join the neck together and pre-load the hinge. So when I string it, it has to be bent and then I unstring it and file a little off at a time. Well, you get the idea. It takes a while. But it's worth it!
