Congrats Dennis, another amazing Kinnaird build in the works. I'm anxious to get your feedback on the Deep Body OM when you get a chance to spend some time playing it? While I absolutely love my SJ, there is something magical about my OM. It is the most versatile guitar I have ever owned, breezing through any type and style of music you throw at it. I assume Tom is finding the same thing with his recent build. The all wood nature of your build is beautiful and very unique. While mine is a 2011 with many hours of playing under the saddle (so to speak) I believe that yours will be fabulous right out of the box. Good luck and congrats and thanks for letting us follow along!!

Oh, Boy! Well didn't this come together nice! My Goodness! 'Satisfaction' should be the word of the day all around. That's my hope for all involved! Just great.

Steve Kinnaird 05-29-2017 05:08 PM

Again, many thanks for the kind words!

Steve

Gotta hand it to Steve. His suggestion. I think it turned out great!

That's all really good work. Well done Mr. K. I REALLY like that it's all wood... as far as the appointments go. Really cool.

All natural ... that's what we had in mind. Thanks Brandon!

I will be more than happy to oblige with a review later this year! Thanks Dave, for following along!

Thanks Pete! We are all quite happy with the way things are shaping up.

Wrapping up the Bridge and Neck ...

I just love this Kinnaird West bridge. Shapely! Here the bridge about to get it's wings.

And with wings complete and all buffed up. The tan streaks in the Ebony should go extremely well with the rosette.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4201/...0bf2e8_o_d.jpg

And perched pretty as a picture near it's final home.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4219/...a42d3a_o_d.jpg

And here, fitting the bottom of the bridge to the top.

And while everyone else was out fishing on Memorial Day ...

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4250/...b6445c_o_d.jpg

Final shaping. The heel cap has that nice tan streak, same as the bridge.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4195/...d772bc_o_d.jpg

After the final clean up, the box will remain out in the air and the light until the Lignum Vitae achieves a nice green color. Then this baby will be off to the finisher. Wait til you see what happens to her there! I'm psyched!

Jobe 05-31-2017 02:37 PM

You sound excited! I know I would be. Hey, that guy with the 'Astro' tee shirt doesn't look like any CNC machine that I'm familiar with. That is curious.

Montesdad 05-31-2017 04:54 PM

Stunning guitar Dennis - - - you've all done quite well on your collaboration.

I'm checkin in everyday on this one - - - - - -

SnowManSnow 06-01-2017 01:26 PM

Awesome craftsmanship. Well done!
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 for the compliment. No the arc of the pins follows the shape of the belly of the bridge. It would be a little severe to follow the rosette curvature. Thanks for noticing and asking.

cigarfan 06-01-2017 03:38 PM

And, if I'm not mistaken the curve of the pins helps the bridge not to crack along the grain. Functional and a smile! :)

Well, all the CNC machines around here look like that. Though at times, to exert their individuality, they will wear different shirts.

This beauty is really coming together Dennis. How do you sleep at night?

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"
