Almost ready to string up my first guitar and I’m reflecting on the process and being really honest with myself about increasing accuracy and eliminating errors I ran into the first go around.
I did some good and some really dumb or lazy mistakes for not researching some parts of my processes.
I decided that I would try and increase accuracy by building some jigs to get some critical operations done well and save some money in this addiction of mine.
Fretboard radius jig and fret slot routing fixture.
Happy Holidays

Be careful and exactly what are you addicted to?

Best of luck! The first guitar should be something to be proud of!
Just keep in mind, the ride is not over.....from here you can actually make a mediocre guitar play great.....or vice versa. The set up, fret work and final details are huge!

Thanks Fred I’m looking forward to learning all about the set up process I have been doing research and have been picking the brains of my brother in law on intonation etc.
I have guitar # 2 in the works but I’m not letting it distract me from my first.
The picture of my first was from weeks ago so some of the hardware is just set on the guitar to see how it will look together.
The color sample is for my next guitar going for a PRS look.
Thanks again for your YouTube series I still refer to it often.
