I've been on a break from guitar building for the last few months but I'm planning a gew builds this winter. I've started the first of them and wanted to share some of the progress. Some new twists on this one.
1.25" multi-piece maple core
.25" flame maple caps, double bound.
2mm flame maple sides...to cover the glue joints and end grain.
The core is made up of 1.5" maple strips, from cutoffs, turned on edge, arranged and dry clamped to give the proper area for a blank.
They were then marked and glued up in steps.
