Thanks Pete! I am over the moon on this one!

Question: that arch w the bridge pins... do they match the arch that the rosette makes or would that be too severe? I just couldn't tell from that last pic.

Thanks Brandon!

At 20,000 plus thread views, I'd say you have captured the attention of a few folks! :D

I for one, am looking forward to the next installment of "Kinnairdly Wait"

No problem sleeping ... I just dream about how schweeet she will sing. Thanks Michael!

Fitting the neck and bridge. That fretboard and rosette look soooo nice together!

And here she is, "in the white" as Ryan calls it.

Our first glimpse of the Alessi tuning machines on the peghead. Mmmmm!

Scruptious!

Not sure but I think these are the last pics we will see for a while. This beauty is off to get her gloss finish. Gonna be a while. I Kinnairdly wait!

Yep she came together real nicely Dennis, Steve, and Ryan. You guys really worked together to come up with a vision and execution. Oh, Larry also, sorry. I can't wait for this to be back from finish and it hasn't even left yet!!! Fantastic, just wonder if we could have dressed up the fretboard a little more? :D

Gotta love a guitar that smiles

Thanks again, guys, and thanks to you for following along Tom.
Yes, we could have dressed up the fretboard further, but I don't think Larry (Robinson) would have taken kindly to that suggestion! ;)
