    Wow. Another stunner.
    That should make somebody's gas diminish for a good long while.

      Thanks Those pics were pretty early in the finishing process. The last of the True Oil has cured out a couple days now, so I'll be starting the trim out today.

          Beautiful.

          I'm woodworking challenged, how do you cut the slots for the purfling in the fretboard?

            Thanks ... I cut the fret marker slots with a thin kerf blade on a sled I built for my table saw.
            I set the blade to peek up out of the base about an 1/8" then run the board over it.

              As soon as I get her strung up I'll definitely have more pics in all her glory. In the mean time, here is a stock pic of the bridge thats going on it. Its one of the Dusenberg multibenders

              Brilliant.

              Those bridges are very cool. This guy knows what's up.

                Oh man. That is so cool. With that bridge, you can do more pedal steel-like things! I really like that. I didn't even know that existed.

                    Thanks all

                    I'm looking forward to putting the bridge through its paces. Its a nicely made unit, and for what they charge it should be. Only place to get them is out of Germany for around $300 shipped.
                    Anyways, I should have her singing today, got most of the hardware mounted yesterday and the shielding done. Only wish I could have more time with her once she completed. Its for a player in Texas that is heading out on tour next week.

                        For sure, I'm a hack player and I'm looking forward to hearing what a good steel player will do with it.

                              I'm very happy how she turned out and the bender is a lot of fun too ... Here is some full frontal ...
