Class 3, Oct 26th, we have completed the first half of the class. The guitar that we are building will be half complete before the next class. The Box with Bindings, pictured above and built last winter, shows the end point for the first half of our guitar, i.e., enclosed with bindings installed.
There is much to be executed before next week's class. The postings for weeks 4, 5, and 6 will focus on the dovetail joint, shaping the neck, installing the frets, the fretboard and tuners. Setting up the instrument for playing is the final class. Hopefully at Woody Strings.
