    I have ground the screw down on one bridge like that was messing with me but that's a good ideal. You may need a you tube channel before it's over. Corny or not!

    Yes, this way you can have the bridge low and the saddles high or vice a versa. I have also shorten the intonation screws , sometimes they stick up and get too close to the string

    Ok time to catch up on some things,,
    I finally finished this dirty Mary Kaye road warrior. Body was built from 1920s Douglas fir pine, copper pick guard , all the parts have been relic’ed , has a Fender custom shop bridge pickup and a custom hand wound neck pickup by some local guy but I don’t know who :( but it is very big and chimney sounding I dig it. I didn’t build this neck and in fact I have no idea where or what it came off of, but it’s been all leveled and set up it has a nice chunky feel to it

    Yes I’m copying another guitar, sort of, probably not exact that’s for sure , I can’t tell you what guitar this is, it’s my own little secret, some of you might know ;) here’s a mock up

  6. That's two different genus of trees. Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menzeisii) and Pine (Pinus sp.) … do you know which of the two it is?
    The neck looks China made. Wide 12th fret marker spacing and no truss rod liner insert. Looks very cool!


    Cheers, Barrie.

    Yeah, you are corny but that is a nice looking neck using materials I haven't seen in a neck before.
    How are the ali dots working out on that?

    I’m pretty lucky in the fact that I’ve been working by myself at this huge vacant house, I’m being very socially distant, but I’m finding plenty of time for projects
    Maybe I’ll call that guitar Corn-E.est1

    Can we talk about stupidity? Ok I’ll talk about myself :( ... so I’m making this Walnut Tele and I’m (eventually) going to make a freakin neck for it but,,,, stupidity has stuck, at least a couple times. I want to make the neck a standard 25.5 scale, I mean it doesn’t have to be but I already made the Walnut neck blank . I have a story pole that I made, one side is 25.5” scale the othe is 24.75” I made a really nice fretboard out of a premium piece of Rosewood, got the fret slots cut and was ready to glue it and I made it the wrong scale :( :( No biggie I will eventually use it. So I have another very nice piece of rosewood, this trim I made sure I had it on the right scale, well I did ,,, ‘Cept,, uh I started with the first fret at zero , freakin DUH! and yup I cut all the slots Nice and pretty too. Do you know what scale that is? I do, it’s 24-5/8” scale, it’s the same as putting a capo on the first fret.
    ......../.. next,,,,,,,,,,, ?
    so that was my stupid deal of the day :)

    Beautiful. I was getting confused because of the 2 pictures, and was remembering 2 guitars you were making, 1 for you & 1 for @chingonas guitars , I think. But this is different, just one awesome guitar that likes to hang out on at least two different benches...
