I think this will be a really nice combo -- this is my biggest shape and the maple should add some brightness and focus to a big bodied guitar sound while the 12-fret body joint increases the volume. As far as subtle techniques, most of that will come during bracing -- keep reading the thread and you'll see!

I've started in on the bending and laminating process for the sides. Here's the cutaway being bent...

And positioning the back...

Today I'll continue on with preparing the cutaway -- this next little bit is one of the most challenging parts of the build. More pictures on the way!
