One trick pony- April fools! No its not…

I hammered the frets in and then ran a bead of super glue under the end of each one. This locks the frets in position. If the ends are locked in place the fret cannot move. After nipping to length, the ends of the frets are filed flush to the wood, then an angle is filed onto the ends and finally smoothed over with a sanding block.

Although it will only have one string this certainly will not be a ‘one trick pony’. Its going to be full of them.  It will sound like an acoustic bass but also have to capability to control any MIDI instrument or computer and use whatever sounds they contain. Pretty cool. Next week I’ll be working on the body and stringing it up (shouldn’t take long) for a test. Then it will be ready for a finish…Part 6
