Hello from Croatia:cool:!

This will be my thread for my last build. I´ve been planing this build for a long time. Now I think im ready. I will start this or next week with this build. Now are holidays, and I have a lot of cousins,aunts,uncles etc. to visit:slash:

Missing: Neck wood(also Honduras)I have it, but it was in my workshop and I was lazy:D.

Maple billet:

This is nice piece of wood. It rings like a bell. It was stored for about 25-30years.This is bosnian or croatian maple I dont know exactly.

close to flames:

body wood:

close to grain:

This is also nice and old piece of wood, and I love it. It is very lightweight I think. Dimensions of the blank are:500x400mm and it weights:3.5-3-6kg(7.7Ibs).

Fingerboard:

Thanks Barnaby

I saw your builds, and they are perfect. When somebody like you tell me that it is going to be good. That really motivates me:thumb:
