I do intend on making another guitar. After I take a break from it for a little while and get some other projects done, I'll decide on whether to do another kit, or to go for broke and try making a guitar completely from scratch. I've picked up a bending iron to practice bending sides; I may just buy some quarter sawn cherry and practice making necks and sides, and when I get a set of sides and a neck that seems pretty good, I'll stop practicing and build the rest of it! :-) Until then, I'm just going to enjoying playing an instrument that I actually assembled myself!
And as you can see for yourself from the picture below, the guitar also meets with Bengal's approval.
A high-res image of the guitar is available here. If you're interested, a real audio file of some strumming on the completed guitar is also available. Note that it's a CD quality file, and so is pretty big - too large for a modem to handle playing in real time, so you'd probably have to download it to your local hard disk and play it from there.
