Default Kwasnycia guitars Memphis build

It's been a while posting any builds, after shoulder surgery and other builds.
I have two guitars going to Memphis and both are SJ guitars. I really didn't want to take two of the same, but it didn't work out for the OO I first hoped for, so my son asked if I would like to use his.
One will be an African Blackwood back and side, Tunnel 13 Redwood guitar. The other is an East Indian Rosewood back and sides with Sitka top. Both have arm bevels and Rib rest.
I won't bother you with all the build pictures, so I will get right to the final stages. The neck and bridge just went on today and a shot of that as a sneak preview. Looking forward to the show and if any of you are there, please introduce yourself.

Thanks Ken, If you didn't recognize the rosette, it is a design from Kevin Ryan. I have used it in the passed on a clients guitar, but this time it was for myself since this guitar is mine. Both times I got Kevin's permission to use it.
See you at the show!!

Beautiful work Dennis. I love how the peg head back strap termination seems to flow continuously into the neck's center laminate. See you in a few days.

Stunning Dennis. I'm sure the show will be very successful for you. Looking forward to my Tunnel 13 build coming up soon. #3 of 13 as a 13 fret SJ.

Cheers,
Mark

Likewise, Dennis.

I hope you have a safe and successful trip in Memphis.

Had it been a direct flight, I probably would've made it.
