RE: new build for a 1987 Reyes style... (in reply to constructordeguitarras

Thanks Ethan, I think I got it figured out, so I'll go ahead and install the board and let Lucio finish off the guitar with lacquer and I'll French polish the top.

I finally had to revamp some of my jigs to make it work right.

Well, I've installed the fingerboard, then to prepare the nut and string it up and to see what she sounds like.

I've done something a little different on this board; I've installed the frets before I glued the board on, so we'll see if there is any benefit to this procedure.

I have this puppy strung up and it's interesting to find that the top key is G-G# certainly thicker than what I'm used to building.

I'm toying with the idea of taking off the bridge and sanding down the top to G-F#.

Solid sounding but needs to open up more. Or I could say, just let the top open up with age.
