    My brother and I are building our first acoustic guitar, it's going to be his since he is paying for the wood/hardware etc...

    We've already gotten quite a bit done. :D

    Here is the back wood. (East Indian Rosewood)

    The top(Sitka Spruce)

    Here they are together, rough cut. As you can see, we got the rosette inlayed(around the sound hole) and the soundhole cut out.

    This project will take us quite a while... but it's looking great and the wood is top-notch. :D
