Guitar Guts - Update Continued

Yesterday J glued the top and bottom of the guitar together.
Here's a good look at all the clamps, bungee cords and rubber bands he used.

The neck isn't done, but he dry fit it to the body.

He will keep shaping the neck; periodically slipping it onto the guitar to check for fit and accuracy.

You can see the steel rod in the neck, and the inlay on the headpiece.

I couldn't get a good shot of the headpiece. J uses brass instead of mother of pearl, and it reflected too much light.

J wanted a picture that showed the walnut sides. You can see a bit of dust; he just finished a little bit of sanding.
This is not the best shot, I'll try again when the light is better.

Here's a close-up of the rosette. The flash bleached out a lot of the color, and I'll try to get a better shot next time.
