Graduation Present: Assembly

So lately I’ve been showing you some of my refinish work, but today you get to see my own creations: the Junia. I love this body shape, so I was happy to get this commission. The lucky owner still doesn’t know that it’s being delivered soon, but my client has authorized pics, so let’s get to it!

Today I’m going to share with you the assembly process, and tomorrow you’ll get to see the fully finished product.

Specs: 

Ash body, flamed maple top, flamed maple control cavity cover
Cherry set neck, ziricote fretboard, maple headplate
