    Here are several more videos of the build process starting with sending the top and back through the planer and thickness sander, glueing it up and finally putting it in the press.





    Then we started on the neck installing the truss rod and the mahogany insert and finally putting it in the press,

    No matter how many times I've seen it done; I still enjoy it.

    We had an additional guitar building session yesterday, we cut the body on the CNC machine. Here are a couple of videos.




    And the current state of the body and neck.

    So much goodness...

    I could actually watch an entire video of the top and back CNC carving from beginning to end.

    We have to do some of these steps ahead of time, "like a cooking show" , so the inlays and the body sanding are a couple of these steps. The group will meet again on Wednesday to see the neck go back into the CNC machine and the inlays will be installed into the freeboard.

    In the meantime, here is Miro sanding the body.

    The ultimate experience would be walking the wood through the entire process of your own build. This is such a cool thread!

    I'm sure such a thing would be possible ... for the right price. For a bit more, maybe you could 'help' at each stage.

    Think of the possibilities. the ultimate hands on custom guitar: The PRS Selfie.

    They'd have to give me a discount for that. I know what kind of work I do.

    Shawn: if this guitar is going to be auctioned off for, or by, the charity, it would be wonderful to have the details when they are available.
