Default Binding Leveling and Body Sanding

Larry levels the bindings and sands the body. I saw the body in person and it has a wonderful silky, ribbon-and-beeswing mahogany look. It popped nicely under sandpaper...should be even better under finish.

The rosewood bindings are leveled to the body.

The beeswing is poppin' a bit.

The LMI glue shows up under black light so the minute traces can be detected and sanded off.

A few shots of the sanded body.

My 00-12 body and the body of the EIR/Adi dread currently being built.

My memory of the Sierra sky
Has been clouded by the savage fire
Feel the glory of the global slam
