Or, alternately, if you REALLY want to get some exposure, post it somewhere besides social media. I avoid social media, ALL of it, like the plague.

I build one guitar at a time. Had no problem selling them. Having problems posting pictures at the moment. They will only go to FB. I'll repost some pictures when I get it resolved. My phones been punished at work for too long. Need a new one.

Posting pictures is trivially easy right here on the forum. Simply use the "Upload Picture" button above the text box.

Here's a question regarding your thread title, New King Pin model "duel pin".

A "duel" is "an arranged engagement in combat between two individuals, with matched weapons, in accordance with agreed-upon rules." Do you sell a guitar called the "King Pin Duel Pin"?

Ya man, go door to door if you want to get some real exposure! Nobody looks at Facebook, what even is Facebook?!

What "even" is Facebook? Well, since you ask, Facebook, and the rest of "social media" in general, is a sewer.

Facebook is a magnet for self-absorbed narcissists with too much time on their hands, who use it to post every detail about their personal lives, as if anyone really cares, and it's where they post all their silly "selfies". It's also becoming a favorite place for Facebook users to "live-stream" their own suicides - a wonderful Facebook feature. Then there are all the faceless, nameless "friends" - people no one knows.

Here's an excerpt from an article in today's Drudge Report, which I doubt you'd otherwise read:

"For the first time, Facebook opened up its Berlin centre for deleting hateful or violent content, providing journalists with a glimpse into the workers' everyday dealings with decapitation videos, racist propaganda and child pornography."

Yeah, Facebook is a real gem, right?

This is really nice. It's almost a cross between a Stringmaster and a Dual Pro.

Based on the fretboard, I'd guess 22.5" but I'm sure Gary will give a definitive answer.

This steel is 22 1/2 scale. I can also offer 24 1/2. My inspiration for this was based on the dual pro dbl. neck with trapezoid pickups. Putting the dual pro and string master ideas together. I did some things to keep wieght off. This guitar has badged over kluson tuning pans(Mine weigh more), instead of using bolts to hold the 3 body sections together I used a spline joint(extremely strong) on the center section, and there are 2 steel bars spanning the full width imbedded in the back under the bridge and saddle to keep any chance of cupping from happening. Tone knob is forward. Thanks for looking.

Looks good!
Personally I'd have the volume knob in front and the switch in back.

Thanks Ron.

Erv, I can make any configuration on the control panel. I use a volume pedal and leave the knob wide open so I don't need it up front. The switch (my opinion) is in the sweet spot for fast neck changes but it can be put to the rear or moved further forward using a separate switch cover. I'm keeping this one for myself but can make one in about a 3 to 4 week turnaround time.

Thanks again for checking it out.
