I've been working on a nylon string Ditson shaped guitar and decided to also make a steel string.
They won't be twins…more like siblings.
Both guitars will have E I Rosewood back and sides with Mahogany necks. Their rosettes and backs won't be the same but they will be similar.
This guitar will have a Furry Bear top. This top has nice color and even figure with a great tap tone that goes on forever.
I'm getting this guitar caught up to the nylon string. I have the top joined.
The rosette is installed.
The top is braced. I'm using a lighter version of the modified "X" bracing that I've been using on my steel strings.
Today I bent some sides and lining strips, then started attaching the the first side. On this guitar, like on the nylon string, I'm using three thin layers of oak bent and laminated for the linings.

We saw an ad for something called 5 second fix and couldn't resist. Especially since we could get two for the price of one! They arrived today.
This is some sort of UV cure "glue" that may have use fixing the odd broken household item but I am not sure if it has much use for luthiers. I was hoping this would be a homeowner version of the kind of stuff the dentist uses for fillings these days but it does not seem to cure very hard. I tested it as a finish filler and maybe it will be useful there. Quick, clear filling but still soft enough to sand.
This is promoted as a glue but it needs the UV to cure and that doesn't work with opaque materials. Fixing a glass item or something translucent may actually bond but it seems to me that only the squeeze out will be cured by the UV. The couple of tests I did with wood scraps confirmed this for me.
Anyone else try this yet?
