If you look you can see the score marks on the inside edge of the band. The back of the guitar is 3/16's cold rolled plate. I beveled the edge and welded it to the body of the guitar, ground off the weld.
    Yes! I saw those score marks but I never imagined you made those. Thought for a moment that they were like a tank's tracks but the piece was way too small for anything like that. Really nice job bending those smooth curves. Very nicely done and a great job welding. Oh, and nice touch putting that toggle switch right where it should be.
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    All this but nobody asks the important question... How's it sound?

    Exceedingly cool, btw.
    Full hand tool assortment, collecting sheet metal hammers/dollies, more time than money.
