Well as the weekend come to and end i got the body off the router with the front side done. I must say the knots in the pine look pretty good lol ..I now have to build a fixture to hold the guitar so i can machine the back pockets out, for the tremello..electronics and contours. I just threw a few extra parts i had laying around on the body to show you the fit of everything.I wont be useing them for this build.

I will take pictures of the fixture after it is built and also go into detail about it and why it is best to machine the rest of the body this way, with this fixture design , I have been a machinist for around 15 years now ,and building fixtures i have had plenty of dealings with knowing what works well with any kind of part or parts you might be building. the main goal behind a fixture is to hold your part in a manner to get the best possible part of your machine square and also everything in the right place where it is supose to be. lol

well enjoy the pictures im sure i will have more for you next weekend

Wauw! Absolutely wauw!

Of course my fascination with the guitar means you will have to be very much aware all the time. Someday you might wake up and it will be gone... wink.gif
