Small update on the 12-string

As the second half of 2018 begins, I’m still working hard on the 12-string guitar.  This is just an opportunity for a quick update on the progress, with a photo of the body as it is today.

This past weekend, I glued the neck into the body and I’m now trying to make sure that I do everything necessary before gluing on the top.  Because there’s no back plate, for example, I had to fix the output jack in place now, as that won’t be accessible once the top is glue on – the controls will be fixed onto a removable plate on the front of the guitar, a bit like a Telecaster.

There will be a full-page update on the build in the near future…in the meantime, I hope you like this picture! 🙂

There is a reason why the inside is stained red!
