Yowzah! Thatís some amazing flame and color there! I think it will look spectacular with the BRW and Cedar top (which will darken a few shades after finish).

Have you also decided on purflings?

I'm not sure if you have this or if Paul would like this, but I think purpleheart purflings will elevate the entire guitar. It will contrast nicely. Purple and Gold are Royal colors meant for a Royal guitar!

Maybe a better shot. Shows the Fretboard side markers through the entire binding, too. These markers are most helpful when playing in a dark room, while drinking! Hahaha

Neck lay up. Fresh from John just now. I like the subtle light inner portions of the Spanish Cedar. A LOT20200607_143016.jpg

We are thinking about more Desert Ironwood for the outer portion of the laminated Fretboard

Woohoo

Paul

Default Some progress shots

The rim is now complete and the Laminated lining on the top Is installed.


The back lining is done and you can see the massive support for Paulís massive back bevel. Also being trimmed up is the side support of the carbon fiber tube



Here is a long quarter inch bit drilling through the neck block into the side support. The quarter inch carbon fiber tube will follow.


The above picture shows a non romanticized view of my shop and how messy structures can look before clean up

Carbon fiber tubes cut to length and fit. The tape will help keep the incredibly messy epoxy off the wood when the tubes are glued in.



Because glue failure is not an option. 5200 pounds per square inch ought to keep things tight.


Struts glued in. Also you can see the slide Chanel for the adjustment mechanism cut into the heel block.

How did I miss this build?! Wow what a set of BRW. I wonder if it is a cousin of my JK BRW West Coast OM, which has some of that same blackness. I love that cedar too.

Paul, congratulations on another beautiful JK coming. My two JKs get more play than anything else I own, because they sound so good, they are so comfortable to play, and they are so beautiful. My JK BRW West Coast (thanks Mike!) is ridiculously good, and is my #1 guitar presently (out of a number that I adore).

Thumbs up Hooray....

Progress, and a lot of it! Woohoo.

Thanks Jamie! I was really tempted by your west coast when Mike had it FS!!!

I am still knocked out by The OVERLORD AND THE BIG GUN. I rarely play my other guitars, and they may be getting jealous...

John's shop is almost as messy as my music room! Hahahahahaha

I just spoke with John and he is quite pleased! So I am pleased too!!! This will be a real KILLER.

Go John, Go

Paul

Hi Jamie
Glad to hear your j.kinnaird guitars are treating you right.
That set of rosewood is probably from the same construction beam that your guitar was cut from. In fact I have one more Set and it is in the process of being made into a west coast OM. Imagine that. I will reveal who its for in a later post but when you hear you will laugh I promise.
