I'll copy-paste a write-up I did in a future post, but for now, you can view my photos of my Aria SW-8 restoration project here:

Cannot access your Photobucket listing fazool. It's set to "Private".

Yup, that did it.
You've done a wonderful job on the resto. Do you have previous/current experience in this sort of thing?

No SW's locally but I'll keep an eye for you. :wink:

Thanks. I'm an engineer and have a lot of hobby woodworking experience. I stumbled upon a collectible 1956 Gibson at a garage sale and did a resto on it about 5 years ago. That went very well so I rolled the proceeds into another, and another and another......I just do it for my own modest collection and to fund my guitar hobby but I've been doing it about 5 years now.

Very impressive. Acoustics can be very tricky and unforgiving to work on. But as you no doubt know, the rewards are worth it!
