I am in Lockdown, because of this Plague so I got some time on my hands and I thought I'd get some building done. Today is a practice body Build, a pine Flying V. its smaller than a standard Flying V, so If it comes out ok, I'm thinking it will make a good solid CBG build.
Planing was easy, cutting not so much, but clamping the 2 halves has been a major pain. Don't think it will come out the greatest, but I got time do more and get it right. might just use this as a template for future attempts.
I can't put my pics up at the moment, but will do soon. What you guys think?
I have never worked with Iroko Ray is it really that unpleasant ?
Hi, don't count me in the race, that mandolin body has gone back under the bench where it been the last 15 years. Maybe one day.
You two enjoy your Mandolin builds though.
A tip. If you can set the neck at an angle that will allow the use of a mandolin adjustable bridge, you will get a good string action easier.
