Previously posted under "Return of the Thistle" I have been making slow progress. Main problem was the hand cut dovetail neck joint which is now complete and done with very sharp chisels, a digital micrometer and a lot of nerve. Binding also done and heading into the finishing thought process.

Here are some update pics for your amusement.

Great work John ! Thanks for sharing the pics - Inspiring.

Inlays and frets then you are ready for finishing?

Are you going to leave the front of the fretboard blank (side dots only)?

Measure twice, cut once...
