      Quite pretty. I like the way the top turned out, almost a burst.

    You do incredible work Freeman!  Is that a mahogany top or stained spruce/cedar?  I've decided that my next build will be a 12-fret parlor, and I'm thinking all mahogany too.  They are so ....well, cuddly.  Perfect for sitting on the sofa in front of a nice fire.

      Nice. Is that the summer build that went sideways on you?

    Wow, done so soon? .png" alt=":smileywink:" title="Smiley Wink" />

     

    Just kidding. Nobody works slower than me so I'm amazed when others set about a project and actually finish it. I was wrestling with the idea of whether or not I liked the color but I kind of think I do now. It reminds a lot of a sort of Tex Mex type of burst.

       I usually check in everyday but it looks like I missed a few steps.

       

       I prefer the smaller guitars. Why did you go with the sloted head, was it typical for the style and period?

        Please tell me you didn't let him spooge on that fretboard. That would not be good.
