I forgot you went sans cutaway.

It's looking stunning. The combo of the figuring, the staining, and the finish make this one of the prettiest instruments I've seen lately.

Oh my! This one is going to be a beauty. I don't know, there's something about Mahagony, and even more so about this set, that makes me want to eat it.

Juston, do you know if John will brace this one differently than he would a Rosewood model of the same size, to increase bass response for example?

I just asked him that very question since I didn't know the answer, Ernesto. He does work the X brace a little differently with mahogany guitars to enhance the bass. It'll be interesting to hear how this one turns out.

Thanks, that's interesting. I am curious to know how this one will compare to your Circa Rosewood OM. Anyway, it will be stunning, congrats!

Beautiful piece of top wood wood on this guitar, and the curly mahogany is not bad at all, either.

I will be anxious to know that as well. It's not always easy to predict.

You love mahogany? Are you sure?

It's hard not to love it when it looks like that!

Not a lot, but here's after one round of buffing. We're getting pretty close to strings.

Hey, I didn't mean to post twice, but I can't delete it for some reason. I stand by my original statement!

Neck is attached. Just needs a bridge and some tuners! (And a nut.)
