Yet more guitar pics

Some shots of the bridge.  This one was too heavy (38 grams, where it should be 25) so I removed some more material after these pictures were taken.

 

Here I’m shaping the underside of the bridge so it fits the dome of the guitar top:

 

 

 

 

Now some shots after it’s been sprayed with lacquer:

 

 

 

 

 

Now it’s time to work on the neck.  I usually use my belt grinder to shape it, but this time I used mostly hand tools to carve it.  The grinder is faster, but the hand tools are much quieter.  😉

 

First the finger board has to be glued on:

 

 

 

 

 

That’s all for now.
