Ha, the blue discoloration is a feature, not a bug. It's going to be a highlight of all the top tier Three Rivers Guitarras instruments. Oh wait a minut, I was told the blue is a fungus introduced by the spruce beetle decimating our forests, so what do you know it's a feature from a bug
I really thought I would just roll with it...
Congrats on the music event coming together. Let us know how it goes! Heck, live stream the event! It would be so cool to kick back here with a glass of wine and listen to your presentation and playing from half the world away. All the cool kids will be doing it, oh wait, we are the cool kids, building our own guitars and playing them, exposing others to a new musical culture and perhaps infecting them with the desire to own one of our special guitars!
So far I haven't seen a disadvantage to the cabinet and origanlly thought I would hang it in a guitar/music shop when the idea poped into my head. The hanger I come up with turned out to,be great as I really was hung up trying to think of a way to support them that wasn't the usual headstock clamp thing you see.
And you are right about the note describing the wood etc, only so many hours in the day.
I hate sanding wood or anything else for that matter I just happen to be good at it...
