The koa-guitar's box (not the case yet) has been closed. Here are the last photos of the insides before the (hopefully) final closing.
|Here you get the idea of the Linda Manzer's Wedge desing|
(or my trying to get there). The body is tapered towards the
bass side to make it easier to hold and play. In this pic there's
still some sanding to go.
|The koa in the back looks awesome - even without finish on it!|
Umm... I think I'll need to work with those top edges before i give it out. Better make a note...
|The soundport cut. It's purpose is to provide |
the player with a bit more sound.
Kinda personal monitor thing... It'll also bring some
"dimensionality" to the sound, especially in smaller rooms.
This is my firm belief...
|I felt the soundport area needed some extra |
support and put an extra brace there.
And yes, the top is trimmed flush
to the sides too
|Glue spread, just seconds before the closing.|
Here we go...
