Well after an awkward few weeks I've got going on the 12'er again. The soundboard is braced and ready to fit, the sides have had reinforcements added, the heel and tail blocks have been fitted so too has the back plate. Photos show the soundboard bracing being fitted, the heel and tail blocks prior to fitting. The side reienforcements and the back in the go-bar deck.
francis I must congratulate you on the aesthetics of this guitar, the combination of woods, purfling, and inlay at the end block is spot on. I’m sure that the guitar will sound as good as it looks so I do hope that the instrument makes it to HB13
martinrowe: A planned colonoscopy

ocarolan: The colonoscopy is fine. The effect of the pre-procedure mega-laxative provoke a mega dire rear, but on balance even that is, as you say Martin, better (slightly)than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Or any stick really.

otis1960: I presumed: where you could stick your banjo (at least it's not an accordion)

robmc: Ahh, I see ... Yes, I imagine that could include anything I own with strings on plus the dog!

martinrowe: Just been learning a new tune - it's going really well. The Tourette's seems to be very bad at the moment though.

ocarolan: At a time when I was teaching guitar to a young lady, her mum said "It's always interesting to hear her practising - it's usually something like - strum strummity strum str..b*ll*x ...strum strumit..oh b*ll*x...and then goes downhill from there!"
