Your guitar is starting to take shape and it's getting easier to envision what it will be; looking great. It's amazing how some builders seem to put in so much extra effort for their 'trademark/signature' features.

Rosette is *nearly* complete but there are a few tricks left.

Ray is nearly ready to string everything up. I asked him to cover everything in excess glue to make the tone as raw as possible.

Ray and I made a last minute decision to use an MDF toilet lid from Home Depot instead of ebony for the back. Here it is with the lattice bracing in place.
