    Got the body thinned down and the back cut to rough shape. Neck screw holes and bridge post holes drilled.

    It's too bad it's not reversible! It would be nice to see either piece of wood on the front of the guitar, depending on my mood. :)

    The shipping cost from Australia would be astronomical! Plus the popcorn would be stale by the time it got to you. :D

    It resembles an Almbic. Is Doc’ giving up medicine to start a Grateful Dead cover band? :)

    It would have been heavy enough before the chambering.

    Everyone knows beautiful woods make a guitar sound better! Players too. Just ask any PRS owner. :p

    I’ve heard that Jerry Garcia would have lived to be 100 except for the weight of that guitar wearing him out before his time. :)

    No doubt.
