I have sent a few pictures as the process is coming along. I'm under the impression adding pictures is become more of a challenge. CigarFan .... you might get a call because you might need to teach several of us on the sharing picture process.

Yes, Mary, you're right -- lots of updates/pics! Really excited at how this is coming along already!

Hopefully, I'm doing this right in terms of adding the photos. Not an expert at posting pics here.

Yes, Sir. He sure does! I am impressed. I'm so pleased for his talent, too.

Double sides! Standard with all McKnight builds. Really love this design/feature.

Coming along so beautifully. I was/am going for a relatively simple, elegant look, and am so pleased with what I'm seeing so far. Love the dark, straight-grain Amazon RW and the blue center seam...which is going to match the purfling.

I'm late to the game here but wish to chime in. I have a few McKnights with varying sound ports. While the Luckenbooth port looks cool, and I do have it on one of my McKnights, I'm partial to the dual sound ports myself (on two of my McKnights; see my 'Black Limba' on page five of the gallery). Maybe it's all in my head, but it feels more like stereo than what I gain from the Luckenbooth or what I've heard from the 'Todd port.'

Congrats on the build, though; Tim will have to correct me if I'm mistaken, but the Lowlander model isn't built as frequently as it should be. That wider lower bout at the tail does something special. Regardless of the model, I feel confident you will be more than fully satisfied by the guitar you eventually receive. And enjoy the process: That's almost as good as the actual guitar! Thanks for sharing the images with all of us.

A virtual tour of the wood room: I still think I'd be salivating and ready to pass out even via Zoom, but you're missing the aroma of all those marvelous woods! Hope you have a chance to truly visit Greater Metropolitan Morral at some point and enjoy the company of the McKnights in person. Great people. Great guitars.

Wow, the construction of this beauty is well documented, this is one serious luthierie paprazzi (first time in my life I ever used two French words in a sentence, I must be getting smarter). I like the look of the blue bordered backstrip.
