It's been fun putting the knotty pine offset BarnCaster together, and it is now as complete as I envisioned it to be at the beginning of the project. Quirkily attractive, comfortable and well balanced whether on a lap or a strap, plays really well, and sounds astounding, both acoustically and through an amp.
Also really enjoyed playing it throughout the assembly process, but now that it's done, I'm not going to do that anymore. This Parts-O-Caster was always meant to be put up for sale when it was finished, to finance a couple other projects, and I'm certain if I make too much more music with it, I'll fall in love and never want to let it go.

And... it's sold. To a nice young couple in Nome, Alaska. It's going to be a Thanksgiving present for their beloved lead sled dog, Rupert, and may he enjoy it well. Something about accompanying the team's nightly howling jam sessions.
