Kidding aside, this may be one of the most incredible looking acoustic guitars I've seen - I'd love to hear a recording when it's all done. I said in the TGP thread that I really enjoyed your PRS-conversion thread and hoped this one would be as enjoyable to follow. It has been, big time!
Cheers
Jordan

That is one awesome looking guitar. I also would love to hear it, but even more so to play it!

Hard to believe how quickly that went from a set of slapdash plans scrawled on a cocktail napkin to a real guitar

Thanks!!

These past few weeks have literally been about watching paint dry (or lacquer, but you know what I mean).

But now, we finished the bridge, so here are pictures with the bridge attached to the top with double sided tape. Check out the extremely dark brazilian rosewood with the cool ivory inserts!

The guitar is not finish-sanded or polished yet, so the lacquer is not yet smooth.
