tv wanted to see my Moonie (the guitar) with the bevel so will try and put a couple of photos on.

Greetings!

That looks lovely!

What's the construction around the bevel?

Hi Mike @mabbottttt (interesting username 😉 )

 

Good to see you here.  And even good-er to see the pics - thanks for posting those.

I’m torn at the moment;

  • buy a Moonshiner
  • try a home build Moonshiner
  • head up to Baileyland and do an acoustic build course

All I’ve decided really is that it’ll be a Moonshiner.  

With a bevelled edge.  I *like* that bevelled edge!

Option two or three.

If you can't wait, or budget is important, option 2

But I predict option 3 is a social experience you'll never forget (especially if they can have more than one person on a workshop)

I’ll never forget the first 3 experiences @jonhodgson 😉 

I’ve done 3 electric build courses.  The first because I never thought I could build a guitar, the second to learn how I did it the first time, and the third just for treat-to me!

Another treat to me is on the cards ... lockdowns permitting.

You would have to ask Mark. I think it was a piece of mahogany stuck on the inside of the top/side and then planed out. Mark had pictures of the construction but I can’t find them on my iPad anymore.

@Mark Bailey, a Bonus section on cutaway types and also plans for a moonshiner would be good too.

Best option: Commission a Moonshiner with Arm Chamfer and watch me make it live!

Damn, that's tempting ... but then I'd miss out on the workshop trip ...
