Default Joining the Back

Larry joins the two halves of the Sinker Mahogany back.

One noteworthy detail here is the center stripe. I wanted something subtle, and a pinstripe of EIR was the ticket. We considered ebony (ala a Collings 1-series), but the EIR will be a better match to the binding and heelcap. So a piece of EIR binding was crosscut, and placed "edge-on" (is that a term?) between the back plates.

Ideal GAS Law

If

G = The ideal number of guitars
C = Your current number of guitars

then

G = C+1
