Final Photos of #12

Here are the final pictures of #12, enjoy!

The rest of #12

I finished up #12 and wanted to post the rest of the build pictures that I had before I post the final pictures.

#12 all closed up!

I got #12 all closed up and ready for bindings. I still have to glue the purfling on the bindings, but that will be fast. Now I just have to find a time to rout the binding channels because it’s sooooo loud! Until then I will be moving forward with the neck and fingerboard.



I almost got #12 closed up. My weekend was just too full with other stuff to get to closing the box up.

I got the soundboard all braced. It needs a little scalloping work, but I am nearly there. After I get the bracing done I can cut pockets in the lining and start closing it up.

Next, I’ll start setting up the binding. This guitar will have Bloodwood binding with white/red/white purfling. Once I get the purfling on the binding, I can route the channels on the box for binding. Then I can start cutting my miter spots at the end and cutaway sections.

Anyway, all this will be illustrated in the next few weeks. Here is my progress so far:

#12 Update

Got some work done on #12 this weekend. I’m shooting to have it closed up by the end of this weekend.


#12 Rim done

I’ve got the rim all done for #12. I guess now I have to start working on the top and back now…. greeeat.

I wanted to make a tutorial on how I glue in my kerfed lining, but I didnt. Oops.


Starting #12

I am starting #12. I am moving pretty good so far. It’s only a matter of time until it comes to a screeching halt because the wife is due any day now.

Anyhoo, this guitar will be a Parlor with a cutaway. There are some things that are undecided (which I should probably get on) but I’ve got the important parts figured out.

Back & Sides: Indian Rosewood
Soundboard: Sinker Cedar (probably)Binding: Bloodwood

I am not sure what fretboard or bridge, what rosette or headplate, etc. I’ll figure those out after talking with my client.
