I see a lot of people with angled saddles. How do you get the intonation right when the strings are not the same length? you will NEVER get it tuned right if your octave and your ping are not…Continue

howdy hippy chip,i just stopped by to answer your question about the bark on the banjo hoop. well i took the easy way---i bought a bowl allready made with the bark on it and it was cut from a log about 10 inches wide and then i cut the center out after i measured a half inch edge and marked it with a pencil. to cut it i used a coping saw after i drilled a pilot hole to put the blade through. thanks for the question. i like telling how i do stuff for those folks that find it interesting.

YEah man, i dont entirely disagree with you..

but what are you gonna do?

to my mind the fundamental problem with it is that guys wanna sell their second third and fourth. period.  But you cant discourage em.  Leave ebay to the noobs and the $65 fretless jobs.  Your battle is already lost.  sorry dude.  your axes look great.  dont sell em online is my advice, put em in the hands of accomplished players who recognise quality and see what theyre offering

I bet'cha money, when you first strung it up you didn't like it too much, but as ya played it and got the tuning dialed in it started voicing and growin' on ya. It happens to me every time. :>) Now, start messin' with different tunings, Open C, Open G and D and find that sweet spot. Fun stuff for sure.

glad to hear your close.. would love to see your work. I work odd hours, I/m on 24/7 for 3 weeks and off 1 week. I can get away some days from 10am to 2 pm during the week. My wife and I are house parents for 6 teenage girls. I hope we can get together.

Wow, that's what I was worried about, I will be out of town from the 26th thru June 2. Maybe we can get together another time?

Hey Chip,
Any developments in getting a jam together? Looking forward to it!

I have made a few using fret wire. The problem I was having was cuting the notchs in it to hold the string. The smaller strings would buzz in the bridge. It works great for the nut but I never could get that buzz out. I will try it again .

It is a laminate so there is no scrapes to glue up. I will figure something out later for now im trying to finish all of what I have started.
