"I ordered a 12-string from Taylor and waited 9 weeks for delivery. Once it came in, most of my enthusiasm for 12-sgtrings had waned and I sold it rather quickly to get the 6-string version of the same guitar.  Unfortunately, I had sold my…"

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
