I'm making a dread or a OLF MJ. It will be made out of WRC and black walnut.

do it! lets team up and make something like todd and filippo. we can both make a dread or the MJ. plus it will get you moving to make another one.

Here is a picture of what I have done so far.

Not that I expected to come close to winning, but you guys are all making some great stuff. I'm going to have a hard time voting! I can't wait to see what you do with the end wedge. Looking great so far!

its been awhile since I have updated, but I am moving along. I put my final coat of true oil on today so I'm going to was until next weekend to buff out the body of the guitar. I have a little more work to do on the neck and then I'll start finishing it. I have the bridge cut out and now I just need to shape it.
I was hoping to be done with this, but work has kept me out of town for over a month.
