Greetings everyone...I'm getting ready to post my latest build.My question is...do you want to see progress pics up to the finished product?.Or do you just want to see the final result?...either way I will try to be tasteful.It's just that I have a bunch of pictures and dont want to over do it if it's not called for.

I'm going to the Mob for this poll.

Cheers

I like to see the whole ball of wax.
From raw wood to final polishing myself.
With most people on broadband nowadays it isn't as bad as it used to be having a picture intensive thread. Very Happy

As a new builder, I really like the build pictures -- I can always pick up tips and what not. As a lifelong lover of guitars, the more the merrier Very Happy

Everything, but please use thumbnails 4 or 5 to a row. Aesthetics, y'know. Very Happy

Stick them all in a photobucket or yahoo or flikr gallery and we'll check em' out. That way it won't take up so much of Bill's server space. Just put a few in a post on the forum. that's my suggestion.

I'm one of those guys who'll tell you to show us everything, but then build one without remembering to take pics to share. Embarassed
Yeah, just like taking a math test. You must show your work!

I wonder though has anyone here been caught claiming to have built a guitar when it was just a pre-made Warmoth part thats painted? (or claimed to have painted himself when its pre painted)

I like to see the before and after ...



The in between stuff isn't necessary unless it's something we don't see all the time.
