00 zouk

pin holes reamed and under saddle piezo in place....


the strings are on!!


for the volume control, we mark......




fit the pot and put on the lovely wooden knob I got....


round the other end the jack socket hole is drilled


and the combined jack socket/strap button is fitted.


I'll leave it a few days to get used to the tension before I do a final set up.

no pics, but i've been sanding the jumbo.

a lot!!

so much that I went too deep on one binding strip and had to remove it, re stout the slot and fit a new one.

ah well, no BIG disaster!!

the guy who I making this for has asked for a tru-oil finish.

I've used other oil finishes before, but he asks for tru-oil, so he GETS tru-oil...

I found a gun shop high in the hills between my home & work so yeaterday I set off to get some.

in the snow

LOTS of fun, slithering all over the place in a front wheel drive people carrier, but when I got there they had none!!

Ah well, as usual eBay will provide......
