Thanks.

This first build was created in Kathy Matsushita's shop and under her guidance. She tracked progress on her web site. ->Link

The next builds will be in my garage with minimal tools.

I have a StewMac mahogany dread on order for build #2.

I've also picked up a set of bloodwood back and sides and a redwood top for build #3.

Pretty wood! I believe the hook was sharp and has been set hard. (I'm sure you're smiling all the way.) :-)

Glued on the bridge last night. Counting down the days until I hear its voice for the first time.

I'm still french polishing, also for the first time. It's really exciting when you get to the point where the bridge, etc. is installed. Your guitar looks really good. I'll be looking for your Guitar #2 & 3 blogs. That redwood is gorgeous!
