Well, a big part of the replica process is the lumber - the maple, the carve, a nice bit of wood for the back and a beautiful rosewood fretboard.
although there is importance on the lumber itself, there are plenty of threads like that. I simply wanted to skip all that and concentrate on the parts and end product.
Now I have started this thread that I never intended to when doing the 'joinery', I'll be sure to keep you updated as it progresses further.
I feel like I'm repeating myself now.
