    That's what I have to do this week... finish up this guitar's carve and carve the neck as well.
    This was from this morning. I loved the lighting coming in from outside, it made it easy to know exactly how much to carve/leave.

    Very cool! I like when you post your guitars! And it was awesome seeing some of them in real life, after I'd seen you posting all the pictures as you were building! :) You've got an amazing, unique talent! :)

    I've been working all morning and have all the rough cut done for that guitar... it looks awesome.
    I'm just taking a little break right now, it's pretty hot out there already.
    I need an AC unit for that workshop. :lol:

    Neat. Hand-carved, i assume, rather than milled?
