Looking great! I really like that small bevel to reveal the maple veneer under the ebony headcap. That’s a classy touch!

Been a while between posts, the guitar was in my finishing process and due to weather lost a couple weeks before I could spray lacquer. Finally the level sanding and buffing has begun.



1st buffing session completed, still some marks in finish but heading in the right direction



Fingerboard still masked



Soon the bridge and strings will go on and it will be making music.

Thanks for looking
Fred

The guitar is now strung up with a rough setup completed and my 1st impressions are real good. The initial sound is very close to what I experienced on Tristan's Nylon string.



Ready for string up



Strings now on and rough setup started



Should have some photos of the completed guitar and a video sound clip in a week or so once it has settled in and the final setup/intonation is completed

Had a little road trip to the Cambridge Ontario area so too a ride up to Elora to visit my buddy Tony McManus who really liked the Maple guitar and did a short video for me.



Thanks for looking

Whoa, Fred! What a transformation! Going from raw pretty wood to finished glorious wood—wow. So very pretty, congrats!
