Default First build

I took the plunge and went for a guitar build course. The top is adirondack spruce and the back and sides are walnut. Todd will post the pictures for me as I'm having trouble with my computer. These are of the semi-finished product. I'm going to send the guitar out to get sprayed. I took over 600 pictures during the process so after I sort them out I'll post a progression.

Super. Bet that was a great experience. If you get time, please write up a big, long piece about the time with him. I bet a good many would like to hear about it.
Congrats on a well made and fine looking instrument.
Bob

Wow, congratulations! That looks great, you must be very proud of it! I like your headstock logo, I know it's an "S" but it has the look of a Celtic spiral which is very pleasing to the eye.
