Thanks Beth and Jim! I am quite pleased with the rosette and so is John!
Meanwhile, the neck blank is laid up. Maple surrounded by Cherry ….
Cheers

Serious bevels! Hahah…. I have requested John Bull Nose (round) all edges on the body, like he has on my other recent builds.

The upper back will be beveled, and the cutaway will have a small finger bevel for comfy playing on the upper neck.

Thanks John

Happy Solstice to all

Paul

Your guitar is looking really sharp Paul! Although, with all those comfort bevels, there are no sharp surfaces to contend with. Looking forward to seeing this one completed and hearing your thoughts on how it compares with your other JK's.

The earth tones of the woods all come together to make a seriously handsome guitar!

So he is rounding off all the edges of the bindings for you?

Thanks Tom! You, of all people should know about handsome guitars!!! Good Eye.

Yes, John assures me all sharp edges will be well bullnosed. I really don’t want my instruments hurting my delicate self! Hahaha

Again, Happy Solstice to ALL

I somehow overlooked Doug’s comment. Sharp, indeed! Haha

I expect it will have John’s signature FAT TONE, and be quite LOUD as well as playing real easily. All his guitars I have played have delivered the goods!

As for differences, time will tell.

Merry Christmas to you and yours, Doug and to all!

Paul

Sorry about the photo resolution. Sigh

Just about ready to visit Tony the Finish Wizard…

John used his spalted Yard Maple for the top purfling. I like it a LOT.

Nice Christmas present in the inbox this am.

Merry Christmas and all that Jazz

Paul

Smile Bubinga and ebony

John says Ebony FB and bridge.

And Bubinga for Headplate and Backstrap.

He also reports liking the somewhat figured Cherry in the neck a LOT.

Pics, John?

If not already shipped, maybe a shot of the tail to show the Wedge???

Happy, healthy, and productive 2024 to all!

Paul
