Spend some time at the Downtown Artist Space in LA. Burris was super helpful and helped me get started at the bandsaw. For my first time using it I think I did really well. I managed to cut out the head plate shapes, head scarfs, body and tops. I also got the templates cut and sanded. I also hogged out a little bit of wood to balance out the body, once the neck routes, control cavities and pickup routes are made the body will be much lighter. Also the body has a very beautiful tpa tone. It’s almost like playing a marimba. I just cannot wait to get this build done. I’m more excited to see this through than the burl maple build!
I glued the top and called it a day.
