When failing for ten years to sell the tree set I am using for this guitar, the deal was generally killed by my saying I was completely unwilling to build a cutaway with it. The stuff is notoriously difficult to bend tightly, and historically most guitars built from it have either been double sides, or lumpy dreadnoughts. So, of course, I am building a 000 cutaway.

So far I have bent 5 test pieces over 2 days trying to accomplish the deed. 3rd time was not a charm. I thought I would succede with #3, which is shown here in the back ground, but the good news is that #5 is in the foreground. It is a scrap from the back, and the actual side is yet to come.
