The guitar: part 2

Here's more of what's happening with the guitar. 

Inside bracing on back. 
It has nothing to do with sound, it will warp if it does not have bracing. 

Home made 'spool clamps', he saved himself a bazillion dollars by doing this. 


Gluing the fingerboard to the neck of the guitar. Two large rubber bands wrapped tight. 

First trial neck fitting. 

Diamond on back of the peg head. 

Isn't is turning out great!  Jim is working on the finish, lots of sanding and applying polyurethane.  I am sure the next post I have, he'll be done or very close.  Stay tuned. 

Until Next Time,
