Hey Beth!  I’ve started your guitar!  I promise not to let all those other guitars I’m working on get in the way of my progress on yours.

I’ve prepped and bent all the binding and purfling.  I used a jig screwed to the workbench to glue BWB to the ebony binding.


I’ve completed the thickness sanding of the sides, and have bent both in the bending machine.  Next step to transfer them to the mold and install the neck block and end block.


I’ve started the neck construction by building the stacked heel block and gluing on the angled headstock.



Once these parts came out of the clamps, I planed down the sufaces to smooth.  Next step to route out the truss rod channels and attach the neck block to the neck.
