Here's a picture of the kit as received from Martin. You can see the sides are pre-bent for you, that the top is already edge-joined and has the sound hole cut. Although it doesn't show up well in the picture, the sound hole already has the grooves cut around it for inlaying the rosettes. The neck is already shaped, and the dovetail joint for joining the neck to the body is already cut into both the neck and the end block.

On to The finished rim and gluing the linings.
