Chuck got his guitar, and this is what he had to say:
June 8, 2011
I just got it yesterday. It came into the mail center and I picked it up as I went to work. I love it! Several others at work were very impressed too. After I finished with the only patient I had last night I just sat up and played all night long. It's very cool. I love the artwork and the finish. It looks amazing! My friend Eddy and I took turns with it. I took several pictures as well. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this for me. I am very grateful and it's already helping to take my mind off of some of the crappy things here in Afg.
I threw in a desert sunrise picture just for the hell of it, and I threw in a picture of a box of rocks. Sometimes the box is smarter. I just thought that was kinda funny. It's a door stop in the hospital, but growing up my mom always used to say, "he/she is about as smart as a box of rocks". So, that made me laugh when I saw it.
Well, I'm off to the gym, before I go to chow, then to work. I'll be taking Crystal with me to work every night. It's nice to have a faithful woman at my side, who can make me feel happy.
:) he he.
Thanks so much!

I will continue to build cigar box guitars, if for no other reason than to share them with the people who give so much, so I can enjoy security and freedom here at home, what better way to say 'Thank You' to them. They are my heroes!

Yes, it's packed well.
That's not a bottle of hooch by the chair, it's the amp.
OOH, I think Chuck likes his lady!
Afghan culture looks like a concrete wall.
How dumb is that?

Nothing like an early morning sunrise to make things look good.
