Almost a full year in the making and I still messed this instrument up. Well actually it sounds pretty great, but the action is a bit to high, with no way of lowering it. I am thinking about shimming the fret board, but then that goes against my once it’s done its done policy. It’s not like there are five others in line for being completed. I’ll just take what I learn from this one and apply to it the next.
Some of the interesting pieces that went into the instrument are of course a chicken cooker, which I love to use as much as I can, but seem to be unable to find them of late. I think I may have depleted the stock beyond repair. The neck of the instrument was made from a piece of oak, and the fret board was designed from an old yard stick from my father. On the right hand side of the instrument I placed seven strings tunes to an open G. I think I did this more the visual then the audio. Who knows, hopefully day they might come in handy.
