Getting the pieces ready to assembled a guitar...

Guitar top, guitar back. Assembling a handmade custom guitar

When building my guitars I essentially put together a kit. I get the top and back cut. glued up, cut out and braced. The top obviously needs the rosette made, inlaid and soundhole cut out. I then prepare and bend the sides, get them fitting into the mould. Then prepare the linings & top/end block. This essentially gives me the kit to assemble the body of the guitar. It can be seen in the photo to the right. Once I have this kit, I can assemble the body.
