Paulownia backs
Paulownia backs for this guitar.

A channel is routed on the back for the centreseam.

The centreseam is a sandwich of Indonesian rosewood with maple/walnut veneers on either side. Here, it is inlayed into the routed channel.

Centreseam levelled with scraper.

Back grafts being glued.

Back grafts of cross-grained Paulownia (offcuts of the back)glued and sanded to a curved cross-section down to #240 garnet.

The back braces are arched the same way as the soundboard before installing.

The final back brace is being glued down.

Back braces shaped and edge feathered.
