TT Flying V

Recommended Posts

I put the blank together last year and intended to start work on it properly today but my sander needs a new belt. At least by posting it here I'm committed to it!

Rough cut body blank, it's made from 7/8 bits of piano and will have an interesting finish applied to it eventually.

7/8 bits of piano in three layers, I'm trying to stay close to the original Gibson body thickness.
But why has he titled this thread "TT" Flying V?

7 or 8 individual bits of piano stuck together. It's hard to count them now I've glued and trimmed it.
I've spent the day working on templates and cutting up wood for the neck , more pics soon and hopefully I'll have a trial run of the finish I'm planning.
