oh, oh, now i understand and yes, you are correct, the binding is not flush with the sides of the body.

someday i will get around to doing that. right now i've just enjoyed playing her and showing her off to friends.

btw, i did buy the correct bit for this stewmac binding so when i build again i won't have that issue.

73custom, you do not need to buy expensive stuff from SM. I'm using the same 0.5" trim bit and I realized that the 3/8 bearing doesn't work for, so I have ordered online 5/16" bearing for 3/16" shaft which give me .09" , and I paid $4 for the bearing.

When I look at your pictures I smell that fresh nitro smell that you get from a guitar case. Its such a good smell.

I'm still alive, just haven't built any guitars in years.

My new house I am building should provide me a small shop again...

Will build again in the next year or so...

I will have to go back and review this thread when time permits. I'm not sure what happened all the pictures.

I believe I have most of them on my computer...

Going to take me a little while b4 I can review the thread and look at what's missing

I remember see this thread a few years ago with all the photos. This was going to be the thread I came to when I was ready to try to build. It's to bad that all the photos are no longer here.
