I'm back ya'll, and that's a fact ya'll.

Anybody still out there?

Here's a guitar I started a while back, it's based on a 20's Martin 00 12-fret. The back and sides are bubinga.

And while I was waiting for the glue to dry on linings on the bubinga guitar, I resurrected this project. It's an OM with a Florentine cutaway ("Florentine" means it comes to a sharp corner instead of being curved). I set it aside a few years ago mainly because I thought the cutaway was beyond my ability. It still is but I'm going to move ahead anyway. Back and sides are East Indian Rosewood and the top will be cedar. I had bent these on older forms based on a different OM plan, and the curves had relaxed a bit over the years, so I touched these up on a hot pipe to get the correct shape.

Well that's it for me... See you all in 2011!
