    This is a little different in that I’m using lightweight paulownia for the body. It’s going to be a solid color so there’s no need for a separate top. Wiring should be fun though.

    With a two point tremolo there’s a fair amount of stress on the two anchors. I’ve seen pictures of these mounts wandering north in harder woods than this so I decided to glue a block of Ash into the middle here to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    I need to sell something so I can order parts lol.

    Excuse me while I go bump the paisley again

    Just need to drill the neck fixing holes and then prep for paint.

    Single color but I haven’t decided which color to go with.

    The wood inlay seems to be a very good idea.
