..am I holding that soldering iron like a recent ex smoker?? .. Paul’s Baritone recieves some last minute tinkering in the electrickery department..
and is set up again..
the last additions are the strap buttons.. with a bespoke guitar like this the strap button position needs to be carefully worked out, preferably with the owner-to-be present..
Paul! ..very very happy!
on to a repair.. every mass produced guitar leaves the factory needing a setup.. in this case I have to take a full 2mm off the height of the saddle!!
the fingerboard is oiled while I’m here before putting her together again..
two bookmatched flamed sycamour pieces are carefully planed
and then we’re on to this beauty.. the pickup and trem cavities are marked out
and routed.. she’s getting there!
..we’ve just re-homed 7 puppies and their mother.. they are rather distractingly cute!!
and the chickens have settled in.. they’ve taken to hiding here when it rains..
yet more laquer goes on these four guitars..
I can’t wait for this one.. she’s going to be something else!
..very cute mommy dog!! (the puppies will be ready in a few weeks if you want one!)
Have a great one.. Ben
