YOU WANTED TO SEE A PROFILE of the necks of these three tenors. Here is the first one, but I have decided to take it down a little thinner tomorrow. It is an easy C shape and feels very good, but not yet as thin as your Martin Baritone, so tomorrow I will go back to the scraper and thin it down some more. This as you can tell is "The Blonde" The other two are still in rough form, but this is getting close. Then the final sanding and I will be getting out the French Polish gear.
While I am at , it here are some more shots of "the blonde" remember, she is unsanded and naked, as in with no finish so she is not as pretty as she is going to be. I have the "hook" about where I like it. The final sandings will make it a bit more prominent, not much. But I love the Australian Blackwood binding. The Koa sides are pleasing but not spectacular.
The Englemann Spruce top has got wonderful medullary rays, proof that it is perfectly quarter-sawn. This wood is cut to Pacific Rim Tonewood's usual exacting standards. It will finish really well.
Here is the rosette, and you can just see the curve of the radiused frets and fret board. The board is Honduran Rosewood, hard and very pretty.
