Very cool. I've had a chance to play eljay's guitar, and she's a sweetie!

Here Larry drills the heel and glues in the threaded inserts.

The neck is again clamped to the body, and the holes in the heel drilled through the existing holes in the mortise.

The hardware is cranked into the holes in the tenon and epoxied in place.

Here is an extra pic...

Larry found a really nice Macassar Ebony short scale fretboard in his stash. So he ordered some Macassar bridge blanks to match (and have in stock). Here is the choice for my guitar.
Martin 00-18G; Eastman 805; Waterloo WL-S; Furch Green OM-SR; Tahoe Guitar Co.: OM (Adi/Hog); 000-12 (Carp/FG Hog); 000-12 (Lutz/Maple); 00-12 (Carp/Sinker Hog); 00-14 (Adi/Ovangkol)

A brown truck eased into my space
My wife screamed somewhere
I struck a deal with the man at the Guitar-for-bills
I am the GASsing stranger
A fool in love, within compulsion mills
-Apologies to Becker & Fagen
