That’s awesome! I have some pre 62’ Strats that I wanted to make display cases for. I’m a guitar owner more than player. That’s a really nice design. Did you use a plan, or make that from your own design? How deep is it? Is it meant to hang, or be a floor display? So many questions! I just love this project. Thanks for sharing!

You did a great job and must be proud to have a guitar like that in your piece.

very nice…was the consternation just the fact that a guitar should be played rather than “cased”??? whatever the reason—-very nice job…
