fret marker dots in place, then the frets fitted & the neck join sorted & the neck bolted & glued into place.

Holes for tuners drilled & a heel cap (maple) glued in.

LOTS of sanding before first coat of lacquer.

meanwhile Steven's guitar. I wasn't happy with the neck join angle as it was off by about 1 1/2 degrees. so yesterday the neck came off again, was fine tuned (REALLY sharp chisel!) and replaced.

By this time next week Steven's will be finished and Tims will have several coats of lacquer.

I hope!!

Wow, have you been busy this week! I'm not usually a fan of acoustics, but your designs and workmanship are starting to change my mind! Good looking instruments there Martin. Congrats.
