    Head stock is now rough formed with the spalted mapel veneer on it. It is really starting to take shape!

    The blue is the same, just the camera difference shows.

    I have just realized I need to start looking for a hard case for my octave. Is there any company out there making hardcases for smaller electrics? This thing won't be small in body size, just short in scale. I've only ever had gig bags, but I want to protect this unit well.
    Any suggestions would be awesome. Thanks all!

    I got a hard case with my Eastwood classic tenor that’s a good fit. Maybe you could try Eastwood for one of those cases.

    SRC started adding the clear. I think it will take several coats...
