I have put the final coats of  lacquer on the guitar. I have glued the neck and am letting the guitar harden before buffing. This guitar has such amazing 3d figure. I cant wait to string it up. I know John is really excited and ready to get his hands on this beauty. It has taken a long time to get to this point and I hope the wait is worth it. I think I am going to tell my future customers that the construction will take a minimum of  6 months.  I hope it doesn’t discourage anyone.
