Looks real nice so far, Neal. Do my eyes deceive, or is the hole kinda D shaped?

Idunno, looks oval to me, but we'll see...

The back

I think you're right. The end of the fretboard causes an optical illusion making that side of the oval appear flatter. Or maybe I've just been staring at this monitor for too long.

Shouldn't be long, Don works fast.
Didja ask for anything special on this one; neck, frets, tone, etc.?

Thanks Rich, and I did ask for the larger frets, slight radius-12", soundhole rosette is different, snakehead, blackface, wanted it to sound like a 70's harmony, but he said no go on that, so I'll have to settle for that nasty Gibson-like roundhole tone. I also asked him to buff it up a little shinier than the regular finish. Neck is the soft V, about as wide as a teens Gibson A. But he promised me he'd put the frets in the right place, so it won't be an exact copy. Can't wait.

Looks great.

What finish did you decide on?

Lee

Heeheee, ask Don for the 14th fret marker. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
