These pieces are only rough cut at this point, but you can now see the basic shape of the guitar body, with its two asymmetrical horns (which will eventually get a bit more of a “point” to them). Even though these are the insides of the laminates, I am able to determine which elements of wood grain made it into the instrument. I am looking forward to a similar picture of the top laminate!
Also notice the profound change in wood color from the previous entry’s picture, taken when the wood was freshly sliced. Once it hits the air, Coco Bolo tends to darken up and the yellow/orange components turn to a more brick red. This color change happens quite rapidly during the first four weeks, but after that initial window, the color change is much more gradual. The difference in color is further enhanced here because of the glue that has been applied.
