Thanks for all the interest everyone. Coffin designs will have to take the back burner for now because we have a guitar to build. Here’s a sequence of back construction shots.

First is the quartersawn cherry backstrip to offset the orange streaks in the Osage.




Next is the center seam reinforcement strip.




Then we’ll slap four back braces on to help hold the curved shape of the back.




And then a shot of the top bracing diagram. We build quite a few 12 fret guitars, but a 12 fret SJ is one of the less explored options from the buying public. Why I don’t know because there’s a lot of warmth to combine with power at this size. We’re happy Jamie decided to have us dig out the layout sheet.




Thanks everyone for following along.
