Default Post-Build Thread: Froggy Bottom M - 1876 German / Figured Mahogany

This is a build thread for those of us with a generous bit of ADHD. You see, this guitar has been in the works for a loooong time (3-4 years) and now, the box is sitting in the living room! I haven't opened it. I have no idea what this guitar sounds like, though I have some vague idea of the appearance! Here are a few photos from along the way. . .

This guitar is an M Deluxe with Mahogany back and sides and a German spruce top. The top was actually logged in 1876. I don’t know the entire story, but I believe Michael purchased these tops many years ago from the legendary classical builder, Thomas Humphrey. I’ve had this top set aside for about 3 years.

I asked for “just mahogany” and got an email back from Michael with the headline “This good enough. . .?”*

Yes, Michael . . . I suspect this may be “good enough”

So why haven’t I un-boxed it?! Well, because I want you guys to come along for the ride. A friend will record this and I’ll post it here (late, late tonight or early tomorrow) for your amusement! See ya'll in a bit . . .
