I actually made one before this. But it was just the body ,the neck was scavenged. It was kind of a test run to see if I could take on what we end up seeing here. The body is two pieces. Mahogany back, quilted maple front, indian rosewood neck, ebony headstock veneer. It’s a set neck, glued instead of bolted. The only thing I didn’t do was radius and cut the fret slots on the fingerboard the luthier supplier offers that service. It was finished with alcohol based analine dye; black sanded back to pop the grain then the purple. I sprayed it with an acrylic laquer, which polished pretty easy but seems kind of soft, damages to easy. Turned out well enough to go ahead and make some more. sounds almost as good as it looks.
