The colour has finished drying, and a final coat was applied. I painted the f-holes and the pegbox black. I cut the slot for the second nut (saddle nut), the fingerboard, and also the main nut. I reamed the peg holes to the proper angle and also the peg hole at the base. I am getting closer.
Next, I'll be shaping the nut and filing the grooves for the strings to be seated. Also, the pegs need holes drilled, and the length needs to be brought to size. There is a soundpost that is wedged inside the body under the bridge that I'll need to cut and shape too.
The last step will be shaping the bridge, mounting the rest of the hardware, and adding the strings.
Sooo close now, I can almost hear it!
