Looks like I'm not allowed to edit my own post, so I'm reposting it to correct some errors with the pics. I'm also adding a pic of the bass bar installation.

I reached a milestone in the project and got the body closed up. It was a shame to cover up the work that went on inside, but it's good to see the hard part done. The thing emits a nice clear tone when tapped on the back, so it seems to be working as it should. I also got started on the neck by sawing out the rough outline. Now it's time to get to work and start carving the scroll. I think I can see light at then end of the tunnel.

The edit function is apparently short lived, because the pencil icon no longer appears. It's even gone on the post I created today.

Yep, you are right. I think you have 30 minutes to edit a post, then the concrete sets up.
