Me and Carol delivered the guitar to Martin today. To be honest I was still not sure about the magnets holding on the truss rod cover and the knot-work panel on the side of the guitar. I had left this unglued because it was the only access to the inside if there was any problem with the electrics. I had thought that I would show him the guitar and he would say ‘hmm.. I like it but can you do this… or that to it’. I was expecting to take the guitar away with me for some last minute tweaks but he sat and played it for ages and didn’t seem to want to part with it again.
He did say he would rather have the side panel glued in and luckily I had brought some glue along because I thought that might be the case. So I glued the last piece in right there in his living room and left it with him.
Big THANKS to Martin and Liz for their hospitality and a great evening – and for giving me the Chet Project. I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
(Foolishly I forgot to take any pics of the finished article but I’ll post them as soon as I can get hold of some…….)
