Well it's kind of late but when you have a day job. You have to work on CBG's when you can. I just finished installing the frets. Next step is going to be the nut and tailstock.

I really think the Bacote fingerboard with the Tiger Maple binding is going to be a show stopper. I think I am gong to use Corian for the nut and either make the tailstock or use my last hinge. My supplier moved and I have not been able to find anyone else that carries that style.

I have to say that the weight of this CBG is pretty cool. I can't wait to see if the steel in the neck has any noticeable impact on the sound. I am leaning towards adding brass corners to this model just to dress it up even more. That's all for now - Jim
