Neck inlays done

Well it has been a little wet over this long weekend so "sadly" I haven't been able to do too many domestic chores outside.

The next best thing I suppose, was to get into the shed and get some more work done on the guitar.

I spent about 6 hours fitting the diamond shape fretboard markers They didn't come up to bad but it was a very fiddly job cutting the shapes out on the fretboard.

On one of the electrics I made, I completely stuffed this up,so I wasn't going to do that again.

This has also kind of got me thinking about some kind of pearl inlay on the peg head ,so I will start to have a read about that now.

I have also ordered the tuners.

After searching around the net and hassling Ted,(

I finally found that it was cheaper to get them from Stew-mac than down here.

Glad to see someone else enjoying the building of guitars.

If you wish, have a look at my Blog on guitar/instrument making which can be found below.

Cheers, Yuri
