The two body shapes are not the same. Similar, but uniquely different.
There will also be variation in the design of some of the inlays as well.

Getting the pick guards and sleeve guards laid out for the inlays.
That's right. Jim Katz double neck says "Rhythm & Bluesy" in

Cutting and fitting the 72+ vine and leaf inlays in the rosewood headcaps
is quite time consuming.
You may have noticed that the small "Rhythm" neck has accommodations
for 8 machine heads. Jim's sn005 will have a mandolin top neck.
This picture is kind of a milstone for me. All the inlays for both guitars
are finished . . . Yipee!
I've used a different type style for these two guitars.
