Re: Bushwhacker Ukulele builds.

Nice work Pete....making guitars and ukes is a bit like having a baby. A lot of grief and pain along the way but in the end it's all worth it.

Red Spruce tops for sale

Have had these up on buy and sale for a while. Need to get rid of them so I've added price reduction for multiple top purchases.

Re: Bushwhacker Ukulele builds.

Pete there are time limits for edits (30mins) and post deletion (15mins). Unfortunately not well publicized. The reasons for this are complex but stem back to issues with a couple of now departed members a few years back.

Re: Rope bindings advice please

What forum culture....I think most people on this forum would agree that the ANZLF is one of the more "laid back" and informal of the luthiery forums.

Re: Test Post

Martin. The guitar is absolutely beautiful. You must feel so proud of yourself. I like the swept back compensated bridge design. Must have been a swear to get the bend on the cut out? Lovely work. Pete Thanks Pete, yeah that cut away was a challenge...I went through 3 side sets before I got it right.

Hi Ray, I'm no expert, I see that it's a re fret so I assume the guitar is a clients. Is it possible that they have used a polish containing silicone?
