The 'Sully' is on it's way to Afghanistan

I mentioned in a post yesterday that I created a CBG for US Navy Nurse LT Virginia Sullivan.  Well, It's on it's way to Camp Bastion, Afghanistan.

This is not only one of the most personally rewarding guitars I've built, but I think it is the best sounding of all.  It has a nice mellow tone, which is attributable to the hardwood nut and saddle, I suspect.

The basis for the guitar is a Cohiba cigar box, oak neck and poplar fretboard.  It's a very straight-forward three-string guitar, which I chose to make acoustic only, because it will be easier for Virginia to enjoy in the Afghan sandbox, without messing around with an amp.
