Not really puttering here and there. I think having the advise of a pro, the right shop and the ability to focus . There are many mistakes hidden away in this guitar. It plays beautifully. We will see soon if it was a fluke or if I have a nack. For it.

I started an electric at the same time it is almost done . All that's left is wiring and setup. Carve a nut. I will get some pics of that up today. ( finally figured out how to resize photos )

Yes, I agree it's beautiful wood and you've used it very well. I especially love the voluptuous lower bouts on that beauty.
