I did the radius for the cocobola finger board today.



10.5" to 14" compound radius

Beautiful, well done.
I made a couple of cocobolo picture frames and had a hell of a time with it.

I had a pair of cocobolo nunchaku.

They broke.

On who's head?

This wood is very waxy. Just a scraper brings up a gloss. I used the orbital sander with 60 grit to clean up the router marks, then right to my scraper, and it's smooth as I need it. The bubinga was a bit harder. They both feel really good to touch.

Gotta get there before 1pm, so I'll take a nice morning ride and get the Harley lumbered up for the season. Excited.

Glad you know you need to be there by 1 pm.

They have a 50% off deal on strings in the gift shop, so be prepared with knowing what you might need and what a reasonable price is.

Wow. Strong fingers. I guess he tuned that center neck to fit this song... I'm pretty sure I'll never build one of those. I'm not a fan of double neck guitars, and 3 is bananas.

I'm confused, I thought the way a guitar works is you use one hand to make the string vibrate and the other to in effect shorten the string to change the sound coming from that string. But his left hand was changing the string length while his right hand was playing in the yard next door?

If you press the fretboard really hard, the string will vibrate a little, especially as it hits the fret. So you can "hammer on" or "tap" the notes and get them to play. This is only really possible with pickups, because the actual acoustic sound it makes is rather soft.

This guy is known for it in his solos

OK, thanks, that's why the strong fingers remark.

The people working there seemed like a big family.

There was a meeting out on the side of the building, and as it broke up, they all walked by, and the tone of the conversations going by was positive.

These three... I think the two guys are teaching the guy on the right an advanced technique. They were in the custom shop section.



The guide was Ben. He had great natural looking hair. Did you have him, glatt?
