Nothing less then perfect

Construction progress in full speed!

As the luthier Giannis Tsoulogiannis had finished the creation of the pick-guard design and the sound-hole, I noticed a small offset on some of the pick-guards' flower elements.

The luthier, in an attempt to fit the pick-guard decoration to the bowl's dimensions and the sound-hole's circumference , offset few centimeters two of the pick-guard's decorative elements.

But since the main purpose of such a unique attempt  was to create a musical instrument with decoration following the exact laws of the Golden Ratio logarithm, the luthier without hesitation re-cut the complete pick-guard, generating a perfect copy of my original design.

After this obstacle was overcome, the luthier worked full speed completing most of the remaining musical instrument's construction parts
