    The guitar that I built for the Crime Stoppers unit sold at auction tonight for $675 with the hanger stand I made for it a couple days ago. Again, this was completely to raise funds for the Crime Stoppers commission and I get nothing out of it...which is how I wanted it.
    Not bad for a guitar that I built almost completely from parts laying in my shop. I only bought a pickguard and jack boat which paired with the materials for the stand totaled less than $45.

    Good on you for helping your community and nice work on the guitar as well.

    I guess a "jack boat" is where the cable goes?

    Thank you everyone. I really enjoy these builds.

    @33db Yes, the jack boat is the boat shaped plate the output jack is mounted into.

    Cool!! At some fundraisers, things can get competitive. I played at a few hospital foundation fundraisers years back.. they had a “dessert auction” where they would bring out cakes that a table can bid on, and share at the table.

    I distinctly remember some cakes (average sized round cakes for 5-7 people) going for 300-500 bucks.

    I’d much rather have the guitar for the money.
