Some go forward, some go backwards. Decided it was better to go back and start again rather than try and hide the flaws.
so are you in business now making guitars and selling em?
"In business" is quite a stretch I'm enjoying building them and covering expenses and hopefully a couple extra dollars.
Few more builds and I'll raise the price a little but it'll never be much of a business.
'Business' is an ugly word.
Take 2. Still not perfect but hey, I think I can make it work.
Don't think of it as business. Think of it as a hobby that pays and just enjoy it.
Doing something you love is usually far more rewarding spiritually than financially. That's the best reason I can think of to encourage you to continue at full speed!

I like the stripes in that Mahogany. It looks a bit like Zebrano.
Yeah it looks great
Oh lordy. I've become moist.
Beautiful grain in the backside, keep up the good work.
Meanwhile, this sits curing. Another week before polish.
What kind of wood is the fretboard? It has heavier grain than most rosewood I've seen.
It appears to be rosewood. Mark supplied the neck. The grain seems to pop a lot more in pictures than it does when you're just looking at it.
Looks like pau ferro
Hard to tell from here but prob some kind of rosewood, could be pau ferro, like this here....
Let's call it Pau Ferro if anyone from CITES asks.
Looking amazing David, I am so immensely stoked.
