    Wow an awesome great video. I am looking so forward to watching the whole build. I want to save all the videos. I loved hearing you guys play the old guitars. I think the older guitars are the best of the best. Thank you so much. I hope you both have a Very Blessed Week.

    I wouldn't let a knife anywhere near that guitar if it were mine. Trace it with the edge of a pencil, then remove it and cut.

    Nice tutorial! I've duplicated guitars before, but didn't know about that stiff transparent vellum. Great tip!

    Maybe rub the tracing paper with a pencil or crayon around the edges of the guitar and sound hole. Then you could cut it out with the x-acto after you remove the paper from the guitar. Kinda like how gravestone rubbings are done. That way would probably be a little lower risk.

    I've been tryna get my hands on plans for the same guitar. Chances of posting a scanible plan for those that have no chance of ever being able to trace the real thing.

    I have an Eko Ranger that I learned to play on 48 years ago when I was 11. I’d bet it’s as good as this guitar apart from it being bolt on neck. It’s a great guitar and if you find one, buy it.

    Are you guys going to do a series outlining the whole incredible sounding build? Please?

    So nice to see a young man apprenticing with a master – and the love of guitar alive and well in the next generation. Great video!

    What's the device on the 5th fret of the J35 at the end of the video?
