Hey Marc, that is one stunning guitar!
I do have a question on the nut, though. I remember a thread not that long ago that talked about the importance of a thoroughly de-greased bone for nuts. Did you do anything to the bone you got from Petsmart, or just use it as you got it?
Had a great time following this thread, thank you Mr. Rutters!
Did you use the unbleached greasy bone for the nut? It will stay in tune better even if glue has a hard time sticking to it. You dog may covet it however. ;-)
That came out great!
B.O.T.Y. thread 2012?
Well, my nomination at least.
Thank you gentlemen truly. I ave been playing this thing for a couple of days and man what a bottom end thump. We did some video today my normal test pilot is in St Louis so we used a couple standbys, didn't take much leverage
This will be one of those threads I'll save in my favorites list along with a few others ............Thanks for taking time to document and share with us.....
Hey there, the soldering iron heats up the metal ferrule which melts the lacquer so it slides in the trick is to not let it be hot too long. With the lacquer melted it causes the ferrule to be encased when the laq drys you got a solid seat kinda like gluing it in. If you try to pound it in the outcome is chips and cracks.
Well thank you Herb! When does yours start? ;-)
Thank you thank you! I hope you had as much fun as I did.
Thank you gentlemen you are too kind.
Thank you Jack, how do you like the weight? I played Mexican Fender Tele today that weighed more than this one.... a nice 3 piece body.
