Default Joining the Top

A bunch of pics have rolled in from the Tahoe Guitar Co.. Several posts follow.

Here Larry is joining the Carpathian Spruce top using a nail press. This top was a bit thin on the edges to be joined. Larry used brown tape and some business cards to apply extra downward pressure to minimize any vertical unevenness along the seam. Normally a very small bit of unevenness might exist, but is sanded off when the top is thicknessed. Larry is being extra careful due to the thin edges for the joint.

Ideal GAS Law

If

G = The ideal number of guitars
C = Your current number of guitars

then

G = C+1
