    A little prep before fretboard glue up

    62416222_2720115321392256_1142587826177572864_n.jpg 65717136_409657699636772_7637687827911671808_n.jpg

    Epoxy in the neck rod and ain't she pretty :D

    Now the fretboard

    66503472_483786852399888_2875048101465292800_n.jpg

    And yes, I completely forgot drilling for and gluing in fretboard markers, MOP :oops:

    But nothing so fancy for side dots :D

    Oh well, I need a little levity sometimes, this stuff is supposed to be FUN after all. Something that was forgotten during the build challenges. I had the most fun and made the dearest friends in those years. I hope someday we get there again, this is a special place and I'm gonna do my best to try to get us back there but am only one man, sigh

    God bless and keep,

    Dave

    Sanded the oak top smooth today, then will route and round over

    67071796_394702774731191_266679205217959936_n.jpg

    Not much to look at now,not profiled or radiused. All the gooey glue around the MOP will be gone then. I love desert eucalyptus :D,except for slotting of course lol

    Breaking news, jazz pup won't fit.I originally set this up for a P bass and apparently set the pup EXACTLY in the middle.Oh well,saves a jack cup for something else ;)
