This is the tail piece that will receive the jack.


The fingerboard is cut and inlaid as a dry fit. It will have fret lines added and be cut to final size next.


This piece is inlaid to the head stock to reinforce the end grain as well as for symmetry throughout the design.

Nut and bridge

This is the brass for the nut and the bridge pieces.

Making the pickups fit... Very fine details to make them fit flawlessly.


Routed the edge for the cover. And, drilled the holes for the legs mounts.
