This blog is about the construction of my acoustic guitar kit and any other guitars that I decide to build I have built a couple of electrics but this is a big step,forward - I hope!

Fretted and Glued

I have glued the fretboard to the neck.Stewmacs rubber bands do really work quite well for this.

I was a bit unsure at first but it was pretty good.

See who can pick the mistake I have made ?? Cosmetic only!

Hmmmm, I really don't see any mistakes. The only thing I see is possibly the double marker where one is mostly covered by the rubber band. For some reason, that marker looks like it could be smaller than the other one. But that probably is just a trick the camera is doing. Your inlay work looks really good. How did you get those relief cuts so nice?

Thanks David.

I have to say that the fretboard didn't come out too bad.I mixed up some Ebony dust with a drop of Super glue and you really can't see where I have filled around markers.Was I happy!!!!

I have put the single markers the wrong way around,but I suppose it doesn't matter unless you look at Stewmacs drawings.

I am going to try some kind of inly on the headstock ,so I will see how that goes.
