Bridge with dyed bone pins. We are using a camel bone saddle, which is supposedly extra nifty….

Woohoo

I know this was a bridge post, but holy cow, look at the silking in that top!

And if you look to the right of the bridge you can see the faint bearclaw. That’s about as intense as it gets in cedar.

Thanks Godfather, and all! Pics in my inbox this am.20220527_112538.jpg.
Mighty pretty faceplate.
20220527_112515.jpg.
I love John’s low profile neck heel, and we decided to put some extra reinforcement in it. This has Johns spiffy sliding action adjustment widget, which will attach inside the body.
20220527_112555.jpg.
Here you can see the angle of the heel due to the Manzer Wedge and the double cutaway.

Happy Memorial Day to all, and Many Thanks to all who have and are serving!!!

Paul

New pics from John just now20220606_155614.jpg20220606_155559.jpg

Looks GREAT to me. I hope you all dig it too

These slot diamonds will make lap slide less demanding for sure!!!

I am pretty sure this will now have a matte finish on neck back.

John has some nice wood buttons for these Gotoh Minis, coming soon…

Cheers

Paul

John reports being “pleased with the sound”. I have no doubt. At all…

Still to come, neck strap button, and K&K. I hate to disturb that cool end graft, but it will be a gigging axe, like all my keeper instruments !

Thanks all for checking this out!

Play the good ones and tune UP often

Paul

Looks mighty purty, Paul--congrats!

I have no doubt either--it will deliver the goods!

Enjoy!
