Excellent forum here! I am a luthier and up until now I have made only classical and flamenco guitars. I love gypsy jazz and the sound and look of those guitars so I decided to try making one. It's a really different style of construction for me but it's coming along nicely.
I have a blog where I'll be documenting my progress from time to time:http://andyculpepperguitars.wordpress.com/
I've got the sides bent and I'll start assembling the body soon, keep checking back!
