I've become very interested in old Supro/Valco/Airline guitars...

For guitars of the straight waisted variety (or reverse offset).

Thanks for the info. I have always been interested in these as well, so if I ever try to get hold of one, I will be sure to get vintage.

PS, Stereo. I'd like to see more of that project, do you have a thread going for it already?
I finally finish building a guitar, go to play it, and then remember, "oh yeah, that's right. I suck at playing... Why did I build another guitar again?"

There's a really old thread about it deep in the pages of the Mods/Projects section.  If you want to skip the trouble of finding it, you can see most of the build pictures that I took (there wasn't many of them) on my website.

I'll be building many more of those in the future.  I consider it my flagship design.  ::)

Jeez, I wish I could find a good Belmont or Sahara for cheap somewhere.

Yeah, they're all around the $900 range these days.  Not cheap any way you slice it, but hey, if you get a Sahara and you don't like it, you could always sell it to me.  :D
