Very somogyi inspired aesthetics. Looks good though. You are doing a great job pulling it off. Keep up the good work.

The headstock is very nice, much more regular than these mosaic patterns usually are.

Oh Thank you very much for your kind words!

Little pictures of the operations of the day:

- First, the road for the trussroad. It was difficult because I don't have the router and the good router bit so... a little trick for this operation

Quand tu dois incruster un Trussroad à 10 mm de profondeur et que tu n'as pas de toupie sur table, ni de mèche 1/4 de pouce.... ça donne ça (Sur une des photo on a l'impression que la rainure est plus large que le trussroad avec un jour mais c'est trompeur, c'est tout ce qu'il y a de plus tight)









- And the Headstock gluing, we'll see what it looks like tomorrow:

Bien hâte de voir la tête de cette guitare qui a l'air bien partie !

Lâche pas,
