    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    I understand the sentiment....believe me I do. It's like cooking a fine steak overly well done (an exaggerated analogy....these instruments are more like hamburger than fine steak :dunno: ) . But I have no choice, the way the actors abuse and bang them around I had to make them more solid. The...

    Two-piece neck grain question

    It doesn't really matter. But I would make sure the runout is going the same way, otherwise if you plan on planing the surface that you glue the fretboard to, it will be a PITA.

    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    It's sacrilegious to glue bridges and soundposts on real violin family instruments. That's why I'm sure @DLRG gave me a sad face even after I explained why lol....but these "practical prop" instruments are worth next to nothing and the show is what counts.

    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    Thanks man! But you guys are too polite! I thought surely somebody would call me out for gluing the bridges and soundposts into place. :run: So I'll explain anyway.....these instruments are practical props for a live theatre play I'm doing the sound design for. The play is called "The Lady...

    String gauge question.

    Depends on the neck and the truss rod....slim necks have a harder time....but hey....it's wood, not sugar. Those things used to take all kinds of mother nature's abuse when they were trees.

    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    Just did some work on a cello and a viola. I set the soundposts in both of them and then glued them in place with CA. Then I set the bridges and tuned them up and glued the bridge feet down to the tops. Stradivarius is turning in his grave :laugh2:

    Scientists Create "Deepfake" Software Allowing Anyone To Edit Anything Anyone Says On Video

    Not scary at all. It's good. It will mean that you don't trust anything on the internet. You won't blindly accept things for face value like people used to do with the MSM for decades.

    String gauge question.

    My fret size comment wasn't about tone, it was about ease of bending when using heavy strings.

    String gauge question.

    Damn! I guess I posted at the same time....too bad I missed the ending!

    String gauge question.

    My brother used to play 13s on his strat. One thing I know.....you really need big frets so you can get some purchase when bending.
