Cool! I imagine the seventh string is a low B rather than a high A?

Usually a low A, B, or C – depending on the style of music
one is playing.

Bending and gluing soundport purfling. Pretty easy. Bending the ebony binding is the hard part.

Bending pipe rig. Bending the cutaways in ebony is maddening.

Gluing the binding.

Back binding and purfling scraped flush with the back. Watching the
clean lines emerge from the mess of dried glue is exciting because
you can see how the careful preparation pays off.

Gluing bridge. I used hide glue to make a rub joint in order
to position the bridge accurately. A bridge will swim around
on PVA glue and of course it is difficult to get excess PVA
glue squeeze-out off the soundboard without sanding across
the grain. This is an annoyance in finishing I am hoping to
avoid by using hide glue with its easy clean-up.
