A guitar in the making !

Jim has been humming and haaing about making a guitar. Well, he finally took the plunge and got started. Here are some beginning pictures to see how it's taking shape. 

rim set assembly (Rosewood)

Spruce top

cloth pins are holding the kerfing

wood parts for top and bridge bracing (they make the top stronger)

 So far, this project is working out nicely, a little work here and a little work there. 
We'll keep you posted so you can see how it's 'coming a long'. 

Until next time,
Lexie ><> (and Jim too.)
