I have been waiting for a neck coming back from the True temperament company and today it arrived! So I had to put the mandolin aside for a few hours to get the TT neck in to the lacquerbox. This guitar neck is for a VRB-c-tt that I have been working on for awhile now. The body is finished only the neck was missing. This guitar plus another VRB-tt are ordered from our new dealer in Silkeborg, Denmark. As you might have seen or heard here on our blog we will do a workshop there the 1st of March. If you have not checked this out, go to there website www.steffmusik.dk.
At the end of the day I still got some work done on the mandolin. The fretboard is now finished with frets and all. The head of the neck got its shape, the tuner holes have to wait. I am waiting for a jig from my friend Peter that he will rout on his cnc machine. I hope I get as soon as possible. In this stage of the building it is more or less the first time I can see how everything will work together. So I normally put all the parts on the floor to get a look at the instrument. It looks really promising.
So tomorrow I will fit the necks to the bodies, if my wife will return my powerdrill. She have borrowed it for a few days to help her son move in to a new appartment.
