and the beat goes on....
This is the first build that I am installing a truss rod. I am using a double action rod from Stew-Mac.
Next I glued on the headstock overlay - black dyed Pear wood and did some layout for the slotted headstock
From this board of Bacote ($30.00 a board foot) will come the blank for the fingerboard.
I should be able to get a match from one of these three. Notice how light the color of the wood is when it is freshly sanded.
A simple jig to layout the position for the tuners.
