Here's the latest update, with shots taken by Yamaha Junkie (with me as the assistant ) this weekend at the McJam.

The saturation's a bit over the top, so you'll just have to pretend it was taken with Velvia film.

Thank you for sharing this. It reminds me of how far your guitar has come from the start. Soon the guitar will be completed.

Since I don't save pictures, I hope to always have access to full albums like the above. It keep the guitar 'real' and not just a dream.

First, the label:



Ready to start attaching the bridge:



But first the holes must be drilled!



In the guitar, too!



Then cut away where the bridge is going to go:



I can't watch!



Whew, safe to look again!



Final fitting and sanding of the neck before attaching it:



Gluing it on!
