    All assembled and I'm pretty happy with the feel and the tone. I'll have to post some sound bites.

    Thanks for following.

    That's truly beautiful. Not only is the wood uber-attractive, those tooled edges kick things up several notches for sure. Wow...wonderful!

    I tried that hand resaw thing the other day with a neck.

    I needed to restart the cut a couple of times because I was struggling to follow the line on both sides, and that was only a few cm wide.

    Doing that as cleanly as you did on a whole body... Mad respect.

    And the guitar ended up lovely, too.

    Spectacular work, really loved the tooling on the sides! Wish I could work wood that well...
