Grand Concert No. 22 Build Gallery, Part Three Here I’m checking to make sure the top fits the rims before gluing the box closed. Here I’m checking to make sure the back fits the rims before gluing the box closed. Last chance to make any changes before the top is glued on! The top and back plates are glued on in the go-bar deck. View of the maple back and sides. The opening in the side is a sound port. The box is closed and sounds great. The heel block is made up of stacked pieces of the maple neck stock. Laying out the parts for the head plate. Setting the rough shape of the heel with a rasp. The head plate is glued on and the fingerboard is pinned in place. This is the stuff that didn’t look like a guitar.
