Found this spatula I think I could bend into a tail piece to run the strings threw. Kinda anchor the strings and be used as a tail piece. Has anyone done this or think it would workout for just a 3 string

No problem. I had to use the angle grinder because the pie server was thick. The spatula you showed looked thin enough for some metal shears. Angle grinders can be had for cheap prices these days, but they can be dangerous too.

Be sure to ask any questions, we're here to help. Post pics when your done.

Alright I appreciate it Paul & will definitely share a pic when I get it finished. Thanks again.

Hey JD. I saw that your build has a bolt on neck. Did you end up with that tee-shirt neck we talked about last year? The one on Amazon? Looking forward to seeing your build.

No Grandpa ,I actually built that neck and it just runs to the back of the inside of the box. Of course I used a couple blocks for support, but Im going to try the bolt on neck we talked about.

Mine was a cheap find...like $3 from the thrift store. It is pretty heavy gauge though. I also cut it down some. It works great!!!

Yeah that turned out nice. Thanks for sharing! Great job on the build ,love that neck
