GOLDTONE BANJO GUITAR
Cripple Creek Series
Gift from a friend to a friend,
and will go back to that friend
Bad Truss-will not adjust- forward pull (warp) on neck
Since I felt that It was not worth pulling the board, and installing a new rod I thought I would
see if I could drill open the heel and drive it out that end.
I am driving thru the truss pocket with a rod., it is coming out
It got this far, and would go no further.
End of board shattered from hammer blows.
So much for that method
Will drive it back in.
Almost back in, tool coming back out
twisting tool to remove it..truss adjuster broke free.
I got it all the way back to flat.
You never know.
Ok great, now to fix all the horrendous damage so it can go back
to work with Mark.
Will glue it all solid now that it has adjusted, it will never
It would not have without this tool jammed up in it anyway.
Will remove the broken fingerboard end, and make that out of
colored CA, slot it, fret it, add new a couple coats
finish since I had a glue run out
Clean it up
Ready to slot, fret, other stuff.
Back together, will make a truss cover
Good enuf for a player
Now to wait on a tailpiece since I needed that one that I
needed for something else, and BG strings, she should be good to
Thanks for watching,Vinnie
