I've been gone awhile, and between waiting for the stuff I ordered to come in and work, I haven't had much time to work on my mandolin that I am refinishing. I am still putting varnish on, and that has been a trip! Tried spraying the varnish with a airbrush system, but the varnish as too thick. So I am brushing on carefully and in sections, to keep drips from happening. The tuners finally came in after being on back order, and I am rather proud of the artwork. I will post photos after I am done with varnish. My next question is: I need step by step help on where to put the bridge. I read the thread here about it, and I think I am missing quite a bit. What is the meaning of 12th fret harmonics? I do know I need to sand the feet of the bridge for a smooth fit, but I am in the dark from then on. Any help will be wonderful!
Bless you all!
