Stringing the guitar

The last 48 hours have been a blur of last minute adjustments to the guitar. I have been back and forth to the workshop making a bridge from Tasmanian Myrtle and carving a saddle and nut from bone.

The kids came into the workshop last night and "helped" Strato to put a coat of shellac on the back and sides. It was amazing watching the wood come to life as the shellac soaked in.

At 2pm today I was in the workshop with Byron and the kids and had Strato and two of his friends helping me to get the guitar ready to put the strings on. Hopefully it will be ready for tonights party and may even get played for the first time! Watch this space....
