Tom, it's hard to believe that this one is moving along so fast...just like mine did. It is looking great. I am certain it will be nothing short of fantastic.

Please enjoy some pictures of the finished box. The photos are pretty much self-explanatory for you guitar aficionados. Please take note of the miter work because it looks flawless to me. The binding is Cocobolo.

Schweeet! That Coco surrounding the Rosewood is going to look exquisite under finish. Count me jealous!
