Any chance of recording any sound clips?
BTW Scot I love those MJF wooden planes that you are using. I have those too.

You've seen the photos of Tarrega sticking his smoke between the strings at the machine head...? Well, this way there is a designated place for your smoke...it's small so you can put the pointy end of your roll-your-owns...
Actually, many 19th century guitars had a hole through the upper peghead (especially those with pegs and figure eight head but they are also found on many of the straight sided pegheads too) for either a ribbon to hang it against the wall or for a strap. They seem to have been phased out with the advent of mechanical tuners and slotted heads. But endpins were common well into the 20th century on gut/nylon string guitars other than the Spanish style.
