the things that I really like about making instruments with floating bridges,
is that you can get it set-up (action and intonation) before any finish is
applied. Once you’re 100% happy that the instrument is at its optimum, you can
take it apart again and apply the finish. This eliminates the angst of filling
saddles and nuts on a freshly polished instrument.
you can Sean’s twin-point going through that procedure. Another use for that
pattern maker’s vice- again, you wouldn’t do this with neck that’s polished!
