Nice to see "my" guitar chosen at the GTOM - before I've even touched it! Maybe it can be showcased there again - after it's finished.

Yes, yes this ^^^^^

In the second photo, a couple at the far end look much darker than the others.  Just the lighting??

Different models. In the two photos I see 8 LSV and 11 LS.

Are we looking at the same photos, Mike.  I see 11 guitars in both.  Still wouldn't account for the darker shade of the two at the far end though.  Don't see how to tell which are LSV and which are LS from those two photos.

Okay, maybe my observations are not accurate but in previous photos we have seen other guitars with ours being made at the same time.
Photo #20 are all LS. You can see no cutaways.
Photo #21, from front to back... 1,2,3,4,6,7,9,11 are F-VI, the others are other models. I base this on the color of the wood and obvious different shapes.
In photo #21, one can see #1 and #6 are LSV, and all the guitars in the photo are stacked the same, so I think all those guitars in the photo are V cutaways from what I see.
So altogether I see 19 guitars, which is our 15 plus 4 extras (2 LS and 2 LSV).

The two darker bodies (Rosewood, I presume) at the far end of Photo 21 above (on this page) look like OM bodies (from the sharper curves on the waist and upper bout).

Ah, ok, so we are seeing other guitars that are in the que, not just our FVI group, in those photos.  That makes sense with the darker colour if it's rosewood.

Yep, our guitars are moving along in different stages of their build alongside other models/guitars/orders.

That only makes sense, as there will be times when they need to be set aside for awhile (as glue dries or finish coats are applied/dry/are reapplied/sanded/etc.). Every step along the way there will be construction, rest, construction, rest, etc.

This doesn't indicate any further progress than the pictures we've seen. I think John Jr. is giving us an inner glimpse of how they track the progress of guitars. We have no insight as to what's going on with the necks at this point.
One thing we do know if I'm deciphering this correctly: 2 people from Canada who ordered an LSV can narrow down their guitar to either 137809 or 137814.

I can't figure anything out from it, but it looks cool.
There are only 17 guitars on the list. We have 19 being made, I am still pretty sure. 801 and 815 are missing.
I think jazzerah (Ralph) is the only Canadian, as well as a killer sax player, and he ordered an LS, which doesn't mean your cipher is incorrect, it just means maybe CA isn't Canada.

Update
Ok. John said don't try and decipher the tracking sheet.
The bodies are complete and ready for the rough fit where the neck meets the body for the first time and the dovetail is created.
We will get some pics of that soon.
Very nice.
