Deep Lake in the mold
Madagascar Rosewood sides of a Russell Deep Lake guitar are bent and in the mold. The tail block and the Honduran Mahogany neck block are glued in place. The Deep Lake is our jumbo (16" lower bout) model.
The angled edges of the mold are for easier clamping. During the process of building a guitar, there are many clamping stages.
