Guitar-building #3: Fretting the neck, routing the pocket

1221 days ago by kenstonge | 8 comments »

After three months of once-a-week woodworking, my Les Paul Jr. project is finally starting to look like a guitar. I spent the first hour of my class installing frets on the guitar’s neck, a process that involves fretwire, a fretting hammer, a few clamps, flush-trimming pliers, some CA glue and a file. The basic process is to cut the fretwire — which had been radiused to 10 inches — for each fret, leaving an extra quarter- to half-inch on either side. Cutting the fretwire Next, I c...

So I picked up 8 Jet Clamps then I returned 4, and ordered 4 Jorgensen Clamps.

Luthiery Fun #5: Bending the Sides Part 2

1392 days ago by Chinitorama | 4 comments »

Here’s a shot of my bookmatched sides ready to be bent: Many luthiers shape an edge on each side with a compound curve before bending. This aids fitting the back and makes it a good idea to label everything before you get started. I’ll shape this edge after bending, but want to ensure the grain is as symmetrical as possible from bass to treble sides of the finished instrument.Bending begins at the waist and I’ve marked this location approximately 14” from what wil...
