Quick Update on the Acoustic Builds

By Tony on June 5, 2014 in Acoustic Guitar Building, Guitar Building, Projects, Woodworking

I have been woefully negligent in keeping my blog updated on these guitar builds.  Four months since my last post is somewhat embarrassing!  The good news is that I am building and playing in lieu of writing.

So for a quick update, all three guitars bodies are complete, the necks for two are built, and one is guitar is fretted and close to final finishing.  I am focusing on completing the 12-fret 0-28VS right now.  I am itching to play it, so rather than spending months keeping each of the three moving forward, I am choosing to complete one.

Here’s the three bodies side by side.


All three are bound with curly maple.


Cutting the neck tenon and body mortise is messy business!


Test ftting the neck.


TrueOil finish on this one.



Right now I am working on the pyramid bridge and the nut.  Getting very close to putting strings on this baby!
