I am making alot of progress on Paul G’s guitar. I have joined the top and have prepared the bracing material along with sanding the bindings to thickness. I have also glued the 5 piece neck blank. In the pictures on this post you can see that the rosette has been installed, the X braces shaped and notched for the integration of the quilted maple bridge plate, side braces and glued to the top. I will shape or “fine tune” the braces a little more after the glue is set. I have shaped the back braces and glued the back joint reinforcement. I am waiting to glue the back braces because I am trying something new for my label.
