Another sunny day, another few photos.

These two maple beauties are coming together nicely. Bracing is done on both, the Birdseye is boxed as of today. With any luck Iíll have the flamed maple boxed tomorrow, setting me on track to bind through the end of the week.

Cedar interior cap on the structured sides of the Birdseye, mahogany block, bound soundport.



Another shot of the interior sides.



Using go-sticks to glue the soundboard on.



Sounboard on.

Nice guitar, and nice photo of the soundboard - really like the way the light highlights the bracing.

Mahogany binding on this one, a departure from my usual black binding. As with all the elements of my guitars Iím taking care to get the details just right. Colour coded so I donít lose track of which piece goes where.

Here are a few more photos of the maple duo for NAMM. These are all of the Birdseye, with any luck Iíll have the flamed maple bound tomorrow. Iím pressing hard to get these off for finish in the next few days.
