Default String'em Up!

Got the Woodsman all strung up. Nothing like a new set of strings. Wound'em up with my power winder and tuned her up nice with my analog tuner!

Old school all the way! I still use my pitch-pipe tuner, but only to get me in the neighborhood. My ear can't match such dissimilar timbres. Just one more way I'm helplessly dependent on electronics.

I'll confess that I am not actually using old Black Diamond strings on this guitars. Let's just say here and there I have taken some liberties as I saw fit. Those old strings were pretty bad but, that old box set sure looks good there!

Thanks Ovation1! It is starting off sounding great. At this point I have a dummy Maple saddle on it while the guitar sorts out being a guitar. I expect I'll have a real saddle on there next week and I will definitely get a some video up on it.

Thanks oliverkoller! If you just read it all I just don't have much to add at this point. I've still have a coffin case to make because, well, that's just what this guitar should have!

Cheers!

Smile No tuning fork?

Come on Mark! This one needs a tuning fork. Good old A-440, and ear from there... haha.

Glad you are NOT using BD strings!

This is so cool....

Cheers

Paul
