40/42 Style fretboard markers! Seamless work!


John said 90% carved! The neck is featherweight with the graphite rod!

John's guitars have a special something about them. Wish I owned one.

Teaser: Headplate

John just sent me this snapshot as a teaser...
A Superb looking MRW veneer!


Assuming he is attaching the neck to the body!

Cheers,

Alan

Hi, Folks

After the teaser, John sent me this photo in my morning!!!



My assumption was right! John is attaching the neck. It looks like a guitar now! A Superb one!

Almost there~ wait a minute... Arg! gotta wait for the CITES permit... Well I am pretty good at waiting haha~

Looking forward to the finished guitar.

Cheers

Alan
