    You are building a great memory for your son, a dream, perhaps even a vocation or profession of love too?

    You are an artist.

    My late father loved wood work, he made me a really crap baseball bat. (I am not saying that your wonderful instrument is crap).

    He grew up in Australia, so was cricket infected. This bat was cursed in the game of baseball, I could not use it, but I did for a time, (while the punks played with aluminum) which is why I never made it to the MLB. It was a fowl stick.

    But I will be God damed if it will not be the first item I take out of my house in a fire, the one thing I want to be buried with.

    Based on the research the type of wood in the electric guitar it is fairly irrelevant as the pick pus do the work and any subsequent reverberation is based on techniques and the physics of induction rather than the characteristics of the wood will leads me to believe I safe to use plastics .the plastics will only be a 1/3 inch thick as is .
    He is a classical guitarist { who plays classical music almost exclusively
    } and this will be a hanging wall piece for the most part.

    But then my Dad was the kind of man who, when I struck out, would rush to the fence and say “beautiful swing son, next time you will hit it out of the park.”

    My God I miss that man.

    And I hope to pass his spirit on to my son.

    My father lived into his 90s, he had a wonderful life, he lived like he wanted to live, and loved more than most men can, he had a fair life, but I still curse the moon for his death.

    OK, I am offically drunk now.
