Further progress on the guitar buillding

In a flurry of bandsaw mahem over the last couple of days, I cut out the body shape from a 2" (nominal) swamp ash blank. I've rough-carved it to profile, and I intend to clean it up with rasps and abrasive paper. I had to put a narrower blade on my Rikon 18" bandsaw in order to accomodate the fairly tight curves of the body shape. Next step will be to thin it a little, since I want the body to be slightly under 2" when complete, and it has to have a quilted maple cap applied yet.
