Thank you so very much!
Thank you sir that is truly a compliment form a fine mechanic.
Is the honeymoon over with your rigs? ;-)
I'm sure there are some who insist thoroughly de-greased bone is a must I disagree, think about it company's make synthetic materials with lube it it so the strings won't bind, they have solved a problem cows and camels have known for ages. I take alot of time to select a bone from Petsmart and you should see the looks from the normal animal freaks that hang out there when I tap-tone the bone....this does sound strange but oh well. I get the thickest most solid looking one I can find then let my dog prep it for a couple days then set it on the shelf for a couple months that's it nothing better than simplicity.
I get the unbleached nicely amber looking ones the animal fat is a wonderful lube. It is less greasy than you would think and white glue does the trick fine to hold it in. I did try Mammoth ivory, Corian and bleached to death bone all sticky so back to the raw bone.
Under 8 lbs. All of my Japanese Rosewoods are more than 9 lbs. They must not have the same chamber routing as yours.
I would say you hit the nail on the head. If your going to chamber it why not chamber the whole thing. I would not complain about the weight on a reissue those are some fine guitars you have there.
I have enjoyed following this thread. Thank you very much!
Awesome build! Sadly, seeing it completed is like finishing a good book. Time to check out some more builds I suppose.
What Collette said. I feel like a member of the "droolers" club following the builds of highly skilled workers on this Forum, and I like it!
Glad to have been able to share thanks!
You know I feel the same way about it coming to a close but time to move on to other builds. I have some interesting ones coming up so if I feel it wont be redundant to the forum I'll defiantly share ;-)
Thank you gentlemen!
Great, I think with a seconder this Tele can now be officially nominated to be in the vote for Build Of The Year.
Easily the coolest thread I've ever seen, on any forum!
Great job, Marc!! This even makes me feel more excited about my future Rutters Tele!! Can't wait!!!
You both are way too kind but thanks!
Heya Pete! Thanks man, good to see you on the forum!
Marc - what do you mean by "white glue does the trick fine to hold it in"? How do you use the white glue? My apologies if that was already stated. I went back and could not find that.
This Guitar is a Beauty. Your Methods are Inspiring too. Just Wow.
By "white glue" I think he means Elmer's. The stuff you used to glue macaroni to construction paper in grade school.
Thats what I use anyway. You just want something to hold the nut snug, so it can be replaced easily if a new one is ever needed.
