Yet Another Guitar Build

Here is a photo Summary of My latest guitar project, which I've named the Acheron after the river in Greece. According to ancient Greek mythology, the Acheron flows through Hades. Check out the progress so far:

The body blank was made from Honduran Mahogany and flamed Maple.

A template was made from a printout of the plan.
The template was traced onto the blank.
I used my band saw to cut out the shape.
If you look closely, you can see the flame.
To make the neck blank, I had to cut 3 profiles and 2 headstock wings.
This is what I ended up with for the blank.
Lost of clamps are used to hold the profiles together.
