The Beginning of a Pair of Brazilian Rosewood OMs

Hello Everyone! We are back with a new build. The last couple were successful, so Jay has decided to make a pair of Brazilian rosewood OM’s. The goal for these two are understated elegance. One way he will achieve this is to give all edges a border. Jay has around ten Brazilian rosewood sets, he stocked up on them eight years ago.  This first post shows the woods that will be used and starts to get the neck. Let us jump into it!
