Hi guys, Yeah, I agree, Darren Riley is just THE BUSINESS!! and Cookieman - attaching the B6 was not hard at all - You have to be somewhat careful drilling holes for the screws/strap button, making sure that you have the positioning correct and don't use too large a drill bit. I used a carpenter's square and a soft pencil line to ensure the thing was going to be central. Also, make sure that it is going to clear the belly of the guitar and sit snugly on the felt pads.

I filled the old holes with 3 whittled pine wedges, using my trusty Swiss Army knife to give them a circular cross section. The B6 actually covers these holes (just!) anyway, so that's not crucial. To me, the Duane Eddy handle is absolutely the crowning glory though - it feels brilliant and much more positive than the butterknife - exactly why I am not sure, but I like it very much indeed!!

Cheers,

Martin :)
