    No! If Sergio documents it, we'll never know what it looks like!

    Look at Serge, looking all fatherly. ;) So, Shawn travels all the way to Chi-town and you take him to Bed Bath and Beyond and Menards? Dude...

    True dat! Although, I suspect that either the little woman, or the little man, may have been taking those pics! :p

    Will be curious to see how they cut out the headstock veneer's truss rod hole since that and the tuning key holes are not cut out prior to gluing it down.

    It's not a problem, we have jigs and fixtures for that type of thing.

    During the next session, the heel of the neck will be sanded and fitted into the body and then the neck and body will be glued together. I think this is a pretty fascinating process and it requires a lot of work and skill to do it right. Our next Wednesday with Paul will be on July 12. I'll post more videos then.

    Thanks for following the progress!

    And this step, The Neck Joint, to me, is the biggest contributor to the incredible musical sound of the entire instrument.

    That dragon inlay, though...

    Shawn, is the bird farther up on the headstock than usual?
