#7 mostly done!

I finished up #7 finally. I will post up final pictures later.

I had a probably with the bridge joint, so I will have to fix that. There is also some cracking on the lacquer that I will need to address. Other than that, she sounds great!


I finished another one!

I am pleased to announce my latest creation that I’ve been keeping secret since August!

I made a small Parlor Cutaway as part of a forum contest of at the OLF. The finished guitar was a gift to my brother for Christmas. I think he likes it.
