    I "liked" this and then unliked it just so I could like it again. That'll be a looker for sure.

    Looks awesome. Will you stain that or leave it clear?

    Have you applied a penetrating oil on the maple?

    Looks awesome. Mahogany body, maple top. Is it chambered? Is that neck maple, it looks like a light coloured timber? The binding looks nice too.

    I'm working on a Billy Bo as well, but I'm still putting the neck together. (Didnt help that I cut an ebony fretboard off at the 21st fret!)
    I'd love to see more pics as you progress.

    I’m not building it, it’s proper luthier that’s doing it.
