Round Plectrum Guitar Project
From the estate of John Huntsberger
Instrument was created in Oregon, U.S.A.
"Curtis" was the inlay on peghead
Instrument came in
with a bowed neck and no truss.
I opted to use a 1960s Gibson PB 250 Plectrum banjo neck, with
the heel cut to match this body.
It already has an adjustable truss, and I will strip this
finish and do a sunburst like the neck.
I will go with tortoise pickguard material and cut it myself.
The neck finish will be left orig and only a few clear coats
over it to freshen it up.
I will dress the frets and go with that, seeing as I am trying
to keep it economical.
Building up the heel to match the body
I left some finish on the MOP to get a two tone look
Armrest attached with 2 sided tape
Starting the heel cut to get the scale to match up
Now to add some tint and finish to the neck.
Instrument plays very well, with a nice quiet but warm tone.
SWAP TO LEFTY 6-18
Fabricating another guard, moved the armrest, re-cut bridge
and nut slots for lefty
The other material was here along time, I got one that was
close but not exact match.
Rough cut in complete
I am overlapping with a scarf cut. leaving the right hand
Adding the double sided adhesive
Ok, its back up and running and I will tweak it on in after it
settles down and then get it on to the customer.
Thanks for looking,Vinnie
