PRIVATE WORKPAGE 2018
Double Neck Tenor Guitar Prototype
Cutting in the pick guard,controls, etc.
Added personal Logos, checking neck fit.
Will re-fret(brass wire) with Stainless
Fingerboard is 16" radius
Removed the outside 2 string guides on each tailpiece
I have to work both pockets to get a proper alignment, will use
one center screw, countersunk, that can be extra retention
Checking the back plate fit. I am good to go.
Using two banjo tuners to check alignment, while a set of
Gotoh tuners are shipped to me.
Pocket is getting close
I have to remove that area by the pickup, it is cramping the
pickup on the top side.
Radius leveling frets at 16", installed the new Gotoh's
Frets dressed and polished, neck ready to install
The screws sent with the pickups are too short, and make the
pickups stand too tall, and they have poor retention and I will
compensate with longer bigger screw.
The spring has to be compressed all the way with the orig screws
That is as low is it will go with the small screws, it would hit
So I will pull the guard, change screws, widen the cavity and go
back together for another test
About that much will be plenty
Now we have retention and height capability
Now all I will need is a 5 degree wedge on the treble side of
the pocket to snug things up and one 015" shim under the tongue
to get a little better action.
Stopping here for stringing talk.
Are we putting the re-entrant on this neck?
