Here you have the necks ready for assembly. I prefer to leave the central part of the neck square. It makes fretting easyer. Finishing the neck is the last thing I do on a guitar.

preparing and gluing the bridge

I´ve finished the French polishing and next step is gluing the bridge. First I have to scrape away the French polish from the soundboard where the bridge is going to be glued.

Inspiration is important whan you build instruments. You must feel good, be there, relaxed and in harmony. Every sunny day when I enter my workshop in the morning, this is what i meet. A bright orange light. Its never the same it always changes depending on the time and the angle of the sun.
