Last week John found another small area that needed drop filling (this time on the headstock). So hopefully by the end of this week he will be able to buff it out, assemble it and string it up. While this part of a build it can feel like watching a tea pot boil, it is a drop in the bucket overall project (I believe that I commissioned this instrument > 16 months ago). John is a perfectionist in terms of his fit and finish. After that, he will want to hang onto it for a week to perfect the set up before shipping it...
