My radius sanding block was too small so I built a jig.

Re: 8 String Puzzle Top.

I love the look of the neck: I'm a big fan of paduak, are the puzzle pieces paduak as well?

Also, I love the fact that the puzzle pieces go onto the headstock as well!

Looking awesome as ever!

Re: 8 String Puzzle Top.

You really need to start building for the public, that puzzle top is too cool!

The pieces are all Silver Birch ply that I dyed.

I already have a successful business so this is just a hobby. I don't think I'd enjoy this if I started doing it for a living + I don't see how anyone make a living out of building guitars small time.
