A little contouring.


As you will see from the following pics the back of the body of the guitar blank has been scarfed out with the bandsaw.. this is for comfort when the guitar is tilted out from the guitaristWhen played the contour would be at the back of the guitar and to the top… I know I am preaching to the choir but some of my readers are even less knowledgeable than me…

Using a ROS and 80 grit the contour is smoothed and shaped for comfort… Sanding willcontinue through to 220 grit…

Starting to look like a guitar…

This photo shows the contour after sanding.
And a quick comparison… bought guitar that is the basis for this build … and the homegrown version.. with variations.All the pickups, bridges, controls are set in place to see how it will look..

And one more from a slightly different angle…
