The Number Seven (7)

I've started number seven.  It will be in the shape of a Gibson J-45 - a slope shoulder dreadnaught.

The back and sides are of bubinga, the top lutz spruce.

Here we see the two book-matched halves of the top being glued on my gluing jig, the wedges (to compress the joint) driven smartly home.  The back will feature two book-matched pieces with sapwood in the middle.
