Well it has been a while!

Rob and I have been very busy with the first months of our new school so I've finally uploaded a bunch of shots of projects that are happening.

So while I haven't finished this one yet, It's getting much closer to finishing.

Here are some shots of the top being glued down using a traditional acoustic guitar making method using spools.

This time I've got the back plate on (not carved at this point) and the birdseye maple pickup cover routed and sitting in place.

Sensational. Got me thinking about what we talked about ages ago. I should get a wriggle on and do mine. ;)

About time for some update shots of Peter's bass build!

This shot shows the rear of the bass getting its 'German carve'

After more than just a few hours of finish sanding it's into the booth for sealer coats.
