Finally got time this evening to work on a guitar! 😁
Picked up a used Bigsby B50 to change out on my Oldest Son’s Jelly! Jazz/Tele 😝😝
Before, was a cheap fake.
Much smoother & stays in tune. Whammy bar is almost parallel with the body, instead of 45deg up in the air.
Nothing on my bench.
Too busy with work.
Last week was finishing off a buddy’s camp on Lake of The Woods. Trim and baseboard. Pine, flooring & kitchen we did earlier this summer.
End of last week, flew back up north to work on inside of outpost.
Cut opening from old cabin to new...
Haven’t had time for any guitars on the workbench.
Had to fly to a fishing outpost to help my brother-in-law & nephew build an addition for an outfitter that has about 11 outposts. Outfitter located 30 miles west of where I live. My father & myself, have built other outpost cabins for this...
Got together this evening to make it a playable axe.
Had to install nut. First sanded a bunch off the bottom & bring nut height down to correct height. String guitar, adjust bridge height, switch wires on pickup selector switch, so it coordinated with pickups properly.
Had a rain day today. Couldn’t do trusses on a garage addition, I’m working on.
Refined the neck profile with the Shinto saw/rasp, & sandpaper.
Worked my way up to 800gt.
Measured, first (0.87), & 12th (0.92), frets, just slightly larger than Modern C.
My son decided on...
