In 2002, Jon built himself a new guitar to replace the one he built for himself in 1980


Here are some of the steps in its construction...

glueing on kerfed lining w/clothespins

glueing sides to face

side-bending machine

tieing on the back

putting back into proper plane, and getting ready to trim sides

marking sides for cut

routing ledge around top for binding and inlay

push pins used to hold extremely  thin strip of black wood while glueing.
