  • Guitar Of The Month - April 2016

    @mattharris75 - "Kensley & Ellie's First Guitar"

    This build was in the works for a long, long time. I started procuring wood when my wife and I were talking about having our first child. Fast forward a little and that child is 6 years old, and has a 2 1/2 year old little sister.

    I built this guitar to a scale that little hands could handle. Something for my girls to hopefully help start a life long love of playing music. Plus, little guitars are just cool!

    It may have taken a long time, but just like my girls, it was worth the wait!


    Here is the link to the build thread over on the forums:
