Bruce, thanks for sharing your cutaway bending process.

Most of the guitars that we see made from “The Tree” either 1) do not have a cutaway or 2) if they do have a cutaway, use thinner laminated side construction. With the figure comes interlocking grain and the propensity to crack when attempting to bend it.

Congrats on your successful solid wall cutaway on Jmat’s guitar...
