Congratulations, That is one nice looking instrument. Must have had hell's own trouble keeping the back strip colour from permeating into the back? Were you trying to make it hard for yourself with two different cutaways? Be great to hear it being played.

Hi Asgilbert,
The back strip is bordered by a veneer and the back was masked off when I applied the red stain, It went really well, no troubles.
The only challenge with the double cutaway is remembering which one is on the treble side when making the patterns.
As for hearing it played, well I'm a lefty so I'll be taking it to a righty soon for a short demo.
