Big Clean-up

This week has seen Ian’s neck carved and the guitar get its big clean-up prior to French polishing.
You can see my favourite tools for neck carving below.
I like to carve my necks last of all. At this point the fingerboard is on and fretted and you can get a really good feel for what the finished instrument will be like to play.
And here we are ready for grain filling………….

Nava Archive
I’ve added a few more instruments to my archive blog, so please take a look if you’re interested. And if you have one of my old guitars (pre-digital cameras era!) I’d be delighted to see a photo of you and the instrument so that I can include it.
