    Jeez! Its moving fast now! The body is almost done and some of the pics show it with some water or alcohol (not sure which) to simulate the finish. The Koa rosette and tailpiece look amazing! He's gonna bind the fingerboard in the same Koa.

    Thanks Lesley, yes I must say I am pretty stoked!!! I found out last night its going to have a maple neck. I was originally going to have a mahogany neck but Marshall came across some really nice maple in his workshop so we're going with that. I think the contrasting colours are going to look great and to hear him talk about the bracing he's used and how the various construction elements relate to the sound I was looking for makes me fairly certain its going to sound just as good. This is clearly a guy who knows exactly what he's doing and why!!

    And more.....He's doing the slothead just the way I like them...I'm so impressed with Marshall. Nothing is too much trouble, I've had every question I've asked happily answered and I've really been made to feel a part of things, my suggestions have all been taken on board. Some weren't practical and Marshall took the time to explain why and some are being used and will be a part of the finished instrument. What an amazxing experience!
