    Thanks all, I''ll post progress pics. I was at a friend's gig last night and met a very talented young artist who wants me to make her an instrument , so it make take a bit .. It's always such a blessing when you meet someone who cherishes the music and instruments as much as you do

    If you were Leo Fender, your picture would be captioned as “halfway done with this one”

    Knowing that slab will someday be a beautiful archtop is both wonderful and amazing. It’s one of the many awe-inspiring things about guitars. I look forward to following the creation process on JGO. Thanks & congrats!
