Thanks Kevin ... I've been using that shape since 1977 and still love it!

Thanks Stuart! Yes, the Group of Seven Guitar Project has been an experience alright! The documentary film is in the "Hot Docs Festival" here in Toronto and the opening was last night. Most of the builders were at the opening and participated in a Q & A at the end. Lots of fun!

No progress to post for today ... so I thought I'd post this pic I took recently of an archtop I made back in '85. I remember being thrilled that this made it into Fine Woodworking Magazine's annual "Design Book" publication, back in the day!

Yes, I'm heading up to see the group of seven guitars on Feb 14th in Kleinburg.

You're making great progress on this guitar above. Love the look. The wood looks full of tone waiting to get out. I'm hoping we get to hear a recording of it at some point!

Hi Stuart ... thanks for supporting the Group of Seven Guitar Project ... hope you like it!

Yes, I plan on doing an audio sample of the guitar. I'll post it at the end of this thread.
