Hello all! For those of you who don't know (and everyone who forgot) I'm currently attending the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery. All I can say is it is perfect. My first electric guitar (I'm a guitar player ) is in the spray booth (final 2 coats of lacquer tomorrow), my acoustic is coming right along and I've started on my second electric. Now I just wanted to share this because I'm pretty happy about it... I don't know how many of you have built an acoustic, or done 3-piece binding. But I just took the binding tape off of my acoustic and I'm pretty happy with the result. Definitely could be better, and I'm looking forward to improving. It's really detail oriented, because those strips of maple purfling under the koa binding are .040", and they are mitered at (about) 45 degree angles at each corner of the wedge. And the maple purfling is shaved off of the bottom of the binding where the binding goes over the wedge so the binding sits flush on top of the wedge. Once again, I wish it was much better but I'm still pretty happy!!! I'll include a couple of my two electrics just for fun I'm going to be building a 6-string bass for a professional friend soon, that will definitely be on here Take care all, thanks for looking! *and sorry for the crummy pic, my camera is ollllllld and there was no good light.* Electric number 2, double cutaway version Electric number 1, fresh out of the spray booth. I am in LOVE with this Koa top. Just can't beat it. Completely natural finish.
