Number two neglected

Hi guys - just finished spraying number three, she's hanging to dry and I hope to have her ready for a jam we are having in three weeks time... Reminded me that I neglected to post pics of number two like I promised in an earlier post. Sorry, got carried away, number three proved to be quite a challenge. Anyway, didn't mean to, number two deserves having her pic on the forum. Here she is - I christened her Ruby, and she made me realize I have a lot to learn about building, but I was satisfied with the end result taking into account my limited skills. Thought number three was going to be easier, but boy, was I wrong! Ruby's specs are: German top, Macassar ebony back and sides. ,

Your #2 is #1. What a nice job!
Did you design the font used for her name?
Be advised I'm stealing that idea for my daughter's upcoming build.
It is very pretty.

Thank you for the compliments, much appreciated. The font was actually stretched to fit the area, so its not standard.

Would never know it is only the 2nd one you have built, PJ. Fine looking guitar!

Beautiful. I like the ebony b&s. How was it to work with?

Thanks guys. Tony, the Macassar ebony was not easy to work with, but then someone with more experience may find different. It also has very deep pores,and is a chore to fill. However, the end result is worth it.
