I've done it at last ! Made me an Ed Thomas 'Look-a-like' ! Not an exact replica, I have never held a 'real' one or a replica (tho' I have seen one across a crowded room,) so the instrument has been made from photos and info gleaned from ever helpful members on this site (thanks Ken, Mike, and Dan) Another constraint was the size of the rather small piece of Poplar I had to hand, appro 36"x 4"x 1 and 1/4", could'nt afford any mistakes in the hand sawing to size !!! Most of the dims. are as near as dammit, just a bit bare on the body depth. One other glaring difference is the use of Perfection tuning pegs, I had some to hand and thought that I had better use 'em up !!! (I ain't getting any younger) Will post more should anyone be interested ?
