The Koa OM for Beth is one of the three prepping for the spray booth (the others are the Koa Parlor and the Zebrawood Resonator).  I’ve been working frantically on the neck shaping and have finally installed (glued) the fretboard.  As you may recall, I goofed up the fretboard by installing the fret markers in the wrong location (an act I have performed before, and continue to perform).  I received a replacement fretboard, installed fret markers in the correct location (!), profiled the fretboard, trimmed/planed the edges, and glued to the neck.


It looks grand, and will be ready for lacquer as soon as I clean up the neck to fretboard joint, profile the neck a wee bit more, confirm the neck angle, and add frets.
