Thansk Bob!
Looks like it wants to be a double cut-away.
Been wanting to make an LP DC Jr.
I have four others in process now and planning an Explorer.
I'll have to wait to free up some space.

Thanks Bob!
Sure felt bad dyeing the Mahogany black, but this one's all about the Bubinga.

When he was alive I used to email Chip Todd, he is most certainly the father of modern electric guitar construction, he used thin veneer and just glued it with pressure, no vacuum bag.
