Tim:
Nice work.
What woods did you use?
Is the neck bound or laminated?
That binding is really neat.

The Timbers are:

Blackwood - sides and back I think

Ebony - Fret board and Sadle

Birds eye maple - bindings

Red wood? - sound board and head stock (Still unsure of this timber)

Malaysian Nyatoh - Neck

Pine - braces - standard soprano bracing plus two fan brace and no sound hole patch.

Strings - Aquila standard hi

Nut and Bridge - White corian

Finish - PPG Classicwood 244 single pack precatalysed modified N/C lacquer 30% gloss sprayed.

Machine heads - Gotoh mini's

Fret wire, ebony, strings and dots - Hana lima

Sting knots do tuck under

Neck is two pices of timber  butt joined and glued together, doweled to the body (made a slight error here aligning the neck but has worked out fine).

The neck binding is somthing that has stuck from my first build. I also wanted to add the same materials as the sound board to the head so I had to come up with a way of continuing the lines which i think has worked out ok.

Talk more soon

Cheers
