"Derick ... going down a half step on the S&P Folk with medium strings helped a lot.  Easier to fret, and the sound is even better.  Thanks for the suggestion.  Earlier when I'd tried tuning down with light strings, I…"

"Robert ... very interesting.  Hard to go too wrong at that price point.  Is it a solid top or a laminate?  Specs are inconclusive. Seems like a very narrow nut width for a parlor ... isn't 42 mm basically 1.65 inches?"

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.
