I fit and glue the sides of #14 today

   # 10 has always been my go-to guitar for taking with me. It fits in my bag, so that makes it easy to carry, but it has had a hard life. I built it in May of 1993 with standard tuning of EADGBE in mind. I have only been on this alternate tuning for 3 years, and keep all 3 guitars in DAEBF#D. All 3 guitars were built for standard tuning.
   # 14 is about the same size as # 10, but this is the first guitar I have purposely built for that 3 bass string tuning I use. So I am using a different bracing and construction with this in mind.
   I am still a few weeks away from playing it, but I will try to keep you posted on my progress. I posted a photo on the photo page today of it all wrapped up in paper and bungee cords. I just have to wait for the glue to dry.
