Making Some Progress

I'm making progress with the archtop, I did get the dovetail cut, thanks for the help Meredith. and now the neck is carved and just need final sanding a fitting.

One of my favourite parts of guitar building is carving the neck, always nice to as they say, see everything that does not look like a neck disappear.

Next I have to sort out a tailpiece, maybe a cast one or I might make an ebony one the jury is still out. I also have to make a bridge.
