Default Neck Set

Larry sets the neck. The requires sanding the cheeks of the heel to bring the neck in proper alignment. The adjustments are very minute. Often "sanding" means using strips of sandpaper like dental floss. The patience and fine skills of a luthier are truly remarkable.

Checking the lateral alignment.

Checking and adjusting the tilt so the fingerboard "aims" at the plane of the bridge.

Looks a bit like a guitar!

Like the castle in its corner
In a medieval game
I foresee terrible trouble
And I stay here just the same
