I've just had these bits of wood for ages so thought id do it.

its about 70mm thick, hollow. I'm undecided about an archtop type bridge and tailpiece or just a normal bridge. I think it might be too small for a tailpiece to look good.

I doodled where the flowers/petals would be on the back last night and did a rough count and theres about 450-500 on the back. so based on that there'll be about about the same again on the headstock, which is pushing it closer to 2000 pieces. 2000!!!!!!!!!!!! shit.

Great work as always.

Two questions:
1) what does the Kanji mean
2) how heavy do you think it will be? Still quite a lot of wood even with the hollow centre.

its sakura which is cherry blossom. and its gonna be a fair bit lighter than a normal one. its a lot thicker but obviously hollow. the backs only 5mm thick so that takes some weight off too
