I had a dream last night that Ed posted pics of a guitar that looked suspiciously like what I ordered. I won't lie, I checked his social media accounts this morning just to see.

I'm not sure, I've been trying to stay out of Ed's way. Having said that, what he posted yesterday was the same shape and woods that I ordered so maybe that's mine!

I made the pickguard using amber tigerstripe Tortoloid which I got from StewMac.

The cohesiveness and symmetry of this one is on point.

Hopeful I’ll have something to contribute to this thread soon.

Thank you

It was a challenge to make and it isn't perfect, but I am proud of it. It's a very lovely guitar, overall.
