    Got the electronics and an assortment of knobs ordered and I have a piece of 1/4" Luan for a top. Just need to order the tuners. This one will come together quick.

    Tuners on the way. Forgot to get a nut and better look over the bridge.

    I've never seen that Epi. Actually, I real like it, but then I like Budweiser too.

    It's been awhile since my last post on this, but I'm stuck in the house not being able to do much since I had a nerve block done early this morning.

    My cousin had a handheld electric planer that he let me borrow so I can shave 1/4 to 5/16 off the top of this body so I can put a Cedar top on it. I'll chamber the body and add F-holes as well.

    Can do the planer yet so I removed the bridge post inserts to get this body ready. 20201208_144647.jpg Did it the best way possible. Lay body flat on hard surface, drop a small nut into the threaded hole(#4), screw in a M8-1.25 x 2" bolt til it bottoms out on top of the nut(keeps the bolt from digging into the body) and gently and slowly screw it in with a wrench lifting the insert out of the hole with marking the top or damaging the hole.
