hi all well its been a long struggle with this one especially the cedar fingers nails aagh but got over it lol. the back was quite hard to bend had to take longer zebra wood as i found it likes to splinter i used the hot pipe method, luckily i noticed this from the start very fine little splinters, so it kept it wet and steaming with a towel.
the heel and back block i used walnut.mahogany neck, ebony fret board,for the head veneer i used coca bola if i spelt it right lol.the finish is French polish the back took some filling thought my arm was going to fall of.

Good work. What did you use for the top? How does it sound?
